I think the trial is a great thing. I do, however, find myself of two minds about the televising/streaming of the trial. I know that pretty much the Supreme Court does not televise/stream its proceeedings. However, I think that since this is not a Supreme Court trial--yet, I think they should be televised/streamed in the interests of transparency.
The arguments of the Prop H8 proponents basically say that they don't want the proceedings to televised/streamed because they will supposedly suffer "irreperable harm" (read: the big bad gays will harass us), but I think they know how mean-spirited they are when viewed and not just read. They know this will turn many from their bigoted views.
I find it ironic that those who want to drive us back into the closet cannot themselves bear the light of scrutiny.
