I don't think there is a queer person in America who isn't sitting on the edge of their seat in anticipation of the California Supreme Court's ruling in a short while on Proposition Eight.
And if my anxiety is high here in Florida, I can only imagine what it must be for those in the Golden State.
I was heartened to read this in the Associated Press report this morning:
In tense anticipation of the news to come, about 400 same-sex marriage supporters attended an interfaith prayer service held Monday night at San Francisco's Episcopal Grace Cathedral.
The Rev. Roland Stringfellow, with the Pacific School of Religion, said the service was meant to show how many communities of faith stand with gay couples on this issue. Among those to offer prayers were a Sikh mother, a Buddhist nun, a Jewish rabbi and Episcopal Bishop Marc Andrus.
The folks on the other side have a different approach:
If a court majority invalidates the measure, angry voters would funnel their energy into unseating the justices who went along with the decision, predicted Frank Schubert, who managed the successful Yes on 8 campaign.
God, watch over us. I'll be posting later whatever the decision.
