NPR's Report on Religious Protests of Judge Walker's Prop 8 Ruling

     NPR reports:
     In Atlanta, about 20 people gathered outside the state capitol building Saturday to protest same-sex marriage. It was the most recent stop on a 17-state bus tourput together by the National Organization for Marriage.

     "There is something wrong when one judge with the stroke of a pen can strike down your civil right to vote," Brown said.  The handful of attendees was outnumbered tenfold by counterprotesters across the street.
     Did these people not learn their civics and government lessons in middle and high school?  Do they not understand the system of checks and balances between the three branches of the U.S. government?  

     Here's the full NPR report:
