A Campaign of Courage

On March 5, 2009, the California Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on a case brought before it by none other than Ken Starr. You remember him. He was the guy who submitted the Starr Report to Congress. His report opened the door for the impeachment of President Clinton.

On December 19, 2008, Ken Starr filed legal briefs defending the constitutionality of Proposition 8. Not only does he want to make sure there will be no more same sex marriages in California, he seeks to nullify the 18,000 same-sex marriages conducted between May and November of that year. Those 18,000 marriages were and continue to be, let's remember, legal.

It is expected that the court will hand down its decision within 90 days after the March 5 hearing. is trying to rally support and interest in keeping those marriages and those lives intact. You might want to check out their web site.

The Courage Campaign asked its members to send pictures with simple messages for Starr and his folk to try and get him to notice that real people are involved here. Those pictures and messages inspired blogger Paul Delehanty to combine them with a Regina Spektor song "Fidelity".
