California Court to Hear Prop 9 Case

Reuters is reporting that the California Supreme Court is going to hear a case disputing the validity of the same sex marriage ban that was approved in the recent election.

In the article, the legal director of a group which advocates gay marriage stated that the election's Proposition 8 mandates discrimination.

I don't see it that way. And that isn't religious right thinking.

Simple logic says that it isn't a discrimination to define marriage as being between a man and a woman. It is just codifies that which social convention has held for years.

I don't see why advocates for homosexual unions don't go at this from a different angle.

It seems the smartest approach would be to get civil unions recognized with the same rights afforded legally to married couples. Isn't that what this is about?

Or is there something more? A different agenda than what is being put forth, perhaps?
