‘Justice for all’ not in California

-A +A
Last Tuesday, the California Supreme Court upheld Prop. 8 thus saying to the world that “liberty and justice for all” does not apply to California. Ever since the beginning of our country, conservatives have opposed all efforts to bring about justice. Conservatives wanted to keep slavery, deny blacks their civil rights, opposed women’s right to vote, opposed the 40-hour work week, lunch breaks, safe working conditions, paid vacation time, paid sick leave, Social Security, medicare and child labor laws to name a few. Now they oppose civil rights for gays. Ultimately justice will prevail as it did on all these other issues. I ask God to forgive, those who believe they deserve civil rights, but not “them.” Gary Miller, Roseville
