Actually, Here's The Important Prop. 8 Decision Event To Attend
Thanks to Paul Cook-Giles for pointing out that I missed the real OC-connected news with regards to the upcoming California Supreme Court decision on a challenge to Proposition 8. While Gloria Allred's press conference is cool and all, you might be better served by going to OC Equality Coalition's "Day of Decision" event at the Old Orange Courthouse in Santa Ana at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
Depending on what the court decides, we will either PROTEST or CELEBRATE.
We will PROTEST if:
-- The court upholds Prop 8, and invalidates the 18,000 same-sex marriage licenses that California already issued;
-- The court upholds Prop 8, but upholds the 18,000 same-sex marriages already performed, which would be a cruel, but phyrric victory for equality.
We will CELEBRATE if:
-- The court rejects Proposition 8 and says that same-sex couples are entitled to the marriage rights that heterosexual couples already have.
More info here. The Liberal OC says that The Center Orange County, Elections Committee of the County of Orange, Harvey Milk Stonewall Democrats - OC and the Democratic Party of Orange County are co-organizing the event with the OC Equality Coalition. OCEC is also planning events in the days and weeks following the decision. The details are at their website.
