GetEqual: History is Watching The Supreme Court

This is a pretty compelling video from the direct action group GetEqual, basically warning the individual Justices of the United States Supreme Court that they might not want to get on the wrong side of history with their rulings in the Proposition 8 and DOMA cases. GetEqual is calling for nothing short of full federal equality under the law for LGBT citizens, something the Court is unwilling to do in the cases, but substantial progress, such as marriage equality in an additional 9 states and heightened scrutiny paid to laws that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation  or gender identity are not unlikely results of decisions in Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor.

I'm pretty sure the voice-over is done by my friend Ben Patrick Johnson.
