Prop 8 Lawsuit Updates: Gay Blogger Gets Press Pass, Gay Marriage Foes To Appeal YouTube Posting, and Homophobe Hak-Shing William Tam Wants OUT!

Gay blogger and activist Michael Petrelis has scored and scored big time by securing a Press Pass to cover the Perry v. Schwarzenegger lawsuit filed by super-lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies, challenging the Prop 8 prohibition on gay marriage in California.  This is a GREAT news and quite an achievement.  Michael is a great blogger who reports on stories the mainstream media choose to ignore. Michael has appeared on The O’Reilly Factor, CNN, ABC News, and National Public Radio.  Michael also has a “no hold barred” style that lays out whats going on pure and simple.  No spin.  No bullshit.  It will be great to have some in depth reporting that we can trust coming from the trail.

And the most recent update from the haters……….

Sponsors of California’s gay marriage ban want a judge to delay implementing his order allowing cameras at the federal trial considering the constitutionality of the voter-approved law.They say they want time to appeal his decision to allow video of the court proceedings on Youtube.com because they oppose having cameras in the courtroom. 

Now adding to this bit of Legal theatre is the fact that suddenly homophobic bigot Hak-Shing William Tam who is one of the five official sponsors of Proposition 8 who formally “intervened” in a federal lawsuit challenging the voter-approved ban wants out of the trial claiming that he fears for his and his family’s safety. In his court filing, Tam’s lawyers say the trial will bring him unwanted publicity and expose him to retribution from gay marriage supporters. Tam also says the case has been more time-consuming and more intrusive into his personal life than expected.

Looks like Tam and the other homophobes only wanted to be intrusive into OTHER people’s personal lives, not thier own own.  That or they are kist plain COWARDS who want to hide behind screens and masks while they spew and spread their bigoted and homophobic lies and hate and try to dictate others civil rights.  Much like the Klan.

Fuck you Tam.  Lie down with dogs……
