'Troubling' attack on religious influence in court challenge of California's Proposition 8

January 22, 2010

In a court challenge to California’s Proposition 8—the voter initiative that barred same-sex marriage—plaintiffs have argued that religious groups are “arrayed against the interests of gays and lesbians.” Gary Segura, a Stanford political scientist who was called as an expert witness, said that the power of organized religion makes the public “very hostile to gay interests.” Defenders of Proposition 8 noted that Segura’s testimony was “troubling” in its implications for religious freedom.
