CA Gay Marriage Ban Slapped Down By Gay Federal Judge

The battle in California over a ballot proposition (Prop. 8) making Gay Marriage illegal has taken an ugly turn.

Federal judge Vaughn Walker’s ruling in August 2010 that Prop. 8 somehow violated the “constitutional rights” of homosexuals to marry their same sex partners came in direct opposition to the 52 percent of Californians who voted for the amendment defining marriage as only between a man and a woman.  So far, okay, but wait... Vaughn Walker is gay. reported “that Walker had been reportedly seen with his same-sex partner at professional and social events. Reuters also published details of the relationship, describing Walker’s partner as a physician, asserting the relationship had been going on for 10 years.”

In early April of this year Walker confirmed that he is, indeed, a practicing homosexual, but insisted that the fact had no bearing on his ability to rule impartially in the Prop. 8 case!  How about that for hubris.

The attorneys for the group pointed out that Walker failed to disclose that he was involved in a 10-year homosexual relationship, a circumstance they argue severely tainted his ability to rule impartially in the case.  Ya think?

Here again we see a subversion of the justice system from left-wing activism.  The arrogant dismissing of the obvious prejudice the federal judge has regarding the case borders on the absurd.

Can a gay judge separate his own homosexuality and remain impartial in a case that completely involves whether homosexuals can obtain legal marriage contracts?  Does the earth orbit the moon?
