A Political Awakening as Gay-Marriage Advocates Take to the Streets?

Hosted by

In California last week, voters overturned a state Supreme Court ruling that same-sex marriage was a constitutional right. Since then, street demonstrations by opponents of Proposition 8 have grown larger. Yesterday, gay and lesbian couples exchanged marriage vows for the first time in Connecticut. Last night in New York, some 10,000 people gathered, protesting the Mormon Church's financial support for Prop 8. Dale Carpenter is Professor of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Law at the University of Minnesota Law School.
