Courtly Love - California's Attorney General Bill Lockyer has filed his response to San Francisco's gay marriages, making that argument that "although committed relationships, gay or straight, 'form the cornerstone of nurturing families and a stable society,' voters and legislators have reserved marriage for heterosexuals for more than a century." Opponents (that is, supporters of gay marriage) are arguing: "The state is advancing a separate-but-equal doctrine that would relegate gays and lesbians to second-class status under the law." What do you think the chances are that the CA Supreme Court will buy either of these arguments, John?
