Under Oath: Prop. 8 Witness Supports Marriage Equality Arguments

Here’s what happened when Prop. 8 was put on trial: We had 17 witnesses, they had only 2.

And when witnesses raise their right hand, they swear to tell the whole truth, even their own witness supported our case.

David Blankenhorn, who now supports marriage equality, testified for the defense. His admissions were telling.

If your own witnesses can’t prove your case, who can? Simple: no one. There’s no reason to deny gay and lesbian Americans the freedom to marry the person they love.
