"Because Americans believe in liberty. We believe in equality. It's baked into our soul. The only way we have engaged in the kind of discrimination that we have, historically, is by somehow overlooking the humanity of the people that we discriminate against. We did that with African Americans. We did that with Asians. We did that with American Indians. We did that with women. We're doing it with gays and lesbians today."
- Prop 8 lawyer David Boies
