LA Times is on the money

I strongly agree with this Los Angeles Times editorial.

The opening paragraph puts it well:

We don't like Proposition 8, and neither does California Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown or Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. But there's a difference between opinion journalists and the state's constitutional officers. California's top public lawyer and its chief executive have an obligation to defend the laws of the state whether they like them or not — and that should include the ban on same-sex marriage.

For the record, I don't like Prop 8, either,but much as I hate to admit it, my personal preferences are not always the same as the requirements of the laws of the state of California.
