ATLANTA (AP)- Actor-director Clint Eastwood is the latest prominent conservative to sign on to a brief opposing a California gay marriage ban.
The news comes the same day that President Barack Obama will file his own "friend of the court" brief urging the Supreme Court to overturn Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that banned same sex marriage.
The court is expected to hear the case on March 26. The justices will listen to arguments about a related case, the Defense of Marriage Act, on March 27.
More than 100 prominent people with current or past connections to the Republican Party or conservative causes have also signed briefs in the case in support of gay marriage.
The court is expected to announce a decision in the Porposition 8 case in June.
I think most people are in agreement that same sex couples should be allowed to unite just like heterosexuals do. I think most people object to their union being called 'marriage'. Same sex couples want to change the definition of the word marriage that has been in use for 12,000+ years, 1 man and 1 woman.
To solve the problem same sex couples need to coin a new word for their union.
