From Courage Campaign: "9th Circuit denies appeal from #Prop8 supporters. YouTubes will be uploaded. Trial starting on-time Monday."

I am glad the appeal was denied. Even though Prop 8 directly affects only same-sex couples in CA, it indirectly affects all same-sex couples in the USA. What is happening in CA is not happening in a vacuum. Many of the people who worked and financed for and against CA's Prop 8 movement do not even live in CA. They have an interest in seeing same-sex couples' civil rights denied or granted, and they will (and have) use(d) the outcome in CA to support and oppose similar legislation all over the country.

This isn't just about CA same-sex couples. It is about the rights of all same-sex couples.
