Gay marriage trial
The federal trial over California's ban on gay marriage will delve deep into some of the fundamental issues that promote discrimination, bigotry and misunderstanding. What it means to be treated equally... what exactly is 'marriage? Are children affected when their parents are gay? Can gay people 'grow out of it.' Unfortunately, for the time being, the proceedings will not be seen on TV - although that could change on Wednesday. The trial could last up to 4 weeks - but it seems inevitable that the case will end up in the US Supreme Court, where a landmark ruling could and should be made.
