"Americans who believe in the words of the Declaration of Independence, in Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, in the 14th Amendment, and in the Constitution's guarantees of equal protection and equal dignity before the law cannot sit by while this wrong continues. This is not a conservative or liberal issue; it is an American one, and it is time that we, as Americans, embraced it."
This is a quote by Theodore B. Olson, from his Newsweek article "The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage." Olson represented Bush in Bush vs. Gore and is a well-respected Republican. Now he's attempting to overturn Prop 8 in the lawsuit Parry vs Schwarzenegger. It's very interesting to hear his case for gay marriage.
