Do the Right Thing

The N.Y. Times editorial page calls on the California Supreme Court to toss out the ballot measure that stripped gays of the right to marry: "Treating Proposition 8 as a mere amendment would set a precedent that could allow the rights of any minority group to be diminished by a small majority. The measure passed 52 percent to 48 percent. ... The justices’ job is to protect minority rights and the State Constitution -- even when, for the moment at least, it may not be the popular thing to do."
