California District Court Judge James Ware has ordered the release of the video tapes of the Proposition 8 trial. The recordings will be issued on September 30th unless "a further stay is granted by the Court on timely motion or by a higher court." You may recall that Focus On The Family last month predicted that Christians might be murdered by "radical homosexuals" if the tapes were ever released.
UPDATE: The American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) celebrates.
This is a significant victory for the American people, who will soon be able to see the evidence put forward by both sides in this historic federal trial. Unlike political campaigns, in a court of law, the truth and facts are all that matter. When witnesses take the stand, they are under oath and under penalty of perjury, and their statements are subjected to cross-examination and scrutiny. The public will soon see the extraordinarily weak case that the anti-marriage Proponents presented in a desperate attempt to defend this discriminatory law.
