Historic trial begins today

From the ProtectMarriage blog:
...Monday, January 11th, trial will begin in the San Francisco courtroom of Judge Vaughn Walker in the federal case of Perry v. Schwarzenegger. The Perry case is about Proposition 8 which restored the traditional definition of marriage in California, to be sure, but it is also about much more.

What is at stake in the Perry case is not just the right of California voters to reaffirm the definition of marriage as only between a man and a woman; a federal court decision overturning Proposition 8 could also ultimately nullify the people’s vote on marriage in 45 states and the federal Defense of Marriage Act passed by Congress in 1996...
Many believe this trial will be the "Roe v. Wade of marriage," and expect it to go all the way to the Supreme Court. Please be in prayer in the days ahead for the judge, attorneys, sponsors, and consultants who will be involved in the case. May God's truth prevail, and may the presentation by ProtectMarriage be both gracious and convincing.
