"A federal judge in San Francisco on Tuesday upheld retired Judge Vaughn R. Walker ruling on California's Proposition 8, after supporters of the measure accused Walker of being prejudiced in the case. Sponsors of Proposition 8, California's 2008 ban on same sex marriage, argued that Walker should have been disqualified because he failed to disclose his 10-year relationship with a male partner. ... U.S. District Court Judge James Ware upheld Walker's ruling that Proposition 8 violated the Constitution's equal protection clause, noting there was no evidence that Walker should have recused himself from the Proposition 8 trial because he was in a same sex relationship."

  • To be fair, those marriage apartheid bigots should also ask anyone in a hetero relationship to recuse themselves for prejudice as well.
