Yes, Judge Walker is gay. Do you think that made him more likely to decide in favor of same-gender marriage? Judge Alan C. Kay is straight. If you're going to argue that Judge Walker's orientation impacted his decision to legalize same-gender marriage, I will argue Judge Kay's orientation impacted his decision to "protect" marriage. Oh, and Judge Kay is divorced and remarried. Would that make him less objective about hearing divorce cases or child custody cases or any cases involving marriage?<quoted text>
The point is not all courts agree that banning SSM is unconstitutional. We both know that.
Is Judge Walker gay?
And just so you know, a three (heterosexual, male) judge panel for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously affirmed that Walker was not obligated to recuse himself from the Proposition 8 case because he is gay.
