Progressive religious groups file petition against Prop. 8

There has been significant news about Prop. 8 in the last few weeks. Recently, state attorney general, Jerry Brown, suggested that Prop. 8 violates the fundamental liberty interest and equal protection clause. A number of progressive religious groups, including Reform Judaism, the UCC (United Church of Christ), the UUA (Unitarian-Universalist Association), the Episcopal Church, and the Quakers jointly filed a petition in the ongoing lawsuit against the state. They argue that the ballot initiative restricts the liberty of progressive religious groups by defining a sacrament using a definition they do not share.
