California Chief Justice Ronald George comments on Prop. 8 in his criticism of California's initiative process

10/11/09 Los Angeles Times:

Among critical comments on California's initiative process, Chief Justice Ronald George observed in a speech
that in November, voters passed initiatives to regulate the confinement of fowl in coops and passed Proposition 8, which overturned part of a California Supreme Court ruling that gave gays and lesbians the right to marry. "Chickens gained valuable rights in California on the same day that gay men and lesbians lost them," George said.
