The hard-core homophobes in the House GOP caucus have revealed themselves, and they are a sorry lot indeed. These are the people American history books will cast into the dustbin: bigots, haters, the sorry folks who see civil rights as a zero-sum game. If you get your civil rights, I lose mine.

US District Judge Vaughn Walker is the judge who issued the ruling that Prop 8, which bans same sex marriage in California, is unconstitutional.

Furthermore, he should have recused himself from the case because as a gay man he would have a conflict of interest in deciding a case on gay rights.

Judge Vaughn Walker of the Ninth Circuit Court announced Tuesday that he will rule on the Prop 8 case (Perry v Schwarzenegger) on Wednesday, August 4, 2010. The ruling will be issued sometime between 1 and 3pm Pacific time and will not be read from the bench. Judge Walker’s ruling will be issued through the court’s electronic filing system, so it will be available to one and all at exactly the same time.
