We are in the second week of the epic trial to preserve traditional marriage in the federal court case of Perry v. Schwarzenegger. The opponents of natural marriage are attempting to portray California’s Proposition 8 as nothing but a continuation of past perceived discrimination against those who self identify as homosexual.

Their witnesses have testified about how they felt when Prop 8 passed, how they felt as couples, and how they felt receiving disapproving looks when walking down the street together. They have failed, however, to say how invalidating Prop 8 would provide a remedy for these perceived social slights.

The attorneys defending traditional marriage have scored some critical concessions from the “experts” put forth by the pro-homosexual crowd. For example, one academic had to admit that there are critical differences between how homosexual men view the importance of monogamy as compared to married heterosexual couples. For homosexual men, the witness acknowledged, sexual exclusiveness is the exception rather than the rule. The “experts” still maintain throughout their testimony that redefining marriage will have no impact on the institution of marriage itself.
