George Takei responds to the California Supreme Court

Thoughtful response from George Takei (famous for his role as Lt. Sulu in the original Star Trek). Odd ending to the video though:

California has disappointed us all today. The State has taken a major step backwards by allowing a civil rights issue to be decided by majority vote.

Imagine if this had been done regarding segregation, votes for women, or interracial marriage?!

Better yet, can you imagine the outcry from the right wing if the courts upheld a ban on prayer in school or owning firearms solely on the grounds that 52% voted to do so!?!
