Attorneys Respond to Eva J. Patterson's 11/21/08 Recorder Article, "Prop. 8 Overhauled the [State] Constitution"

12/05/08 Recorder Letters to the Editor: Two Recorder readers respond to Eva Patterson's article. Attorney Edward J. Taffe invokes Webster's dictionary to support his claim that "Prop. 8, like Prop. 22 before it, vindicates the most basic tenets of democracy." Attorney Russell Davis favors procreation as a rational basis for the state to ban gay marriage. And he rides a familiar, slippery slope from protection for "loving, caring, and sharing relationships" in gay marriages to protection for polygamy and "plural marriages."
