Did the Prop 8 campaign subconsciously admit that gay marriage really isn't that big of a deal? The Courage Campaign this week launched their a live blog covering the trial, designed with a touch of parody, mocking the Prop 8 logo, made up of a man, a woman and two children. Courage Campaign turned it into a lesbian couple with two children.

So what did the Prop 8 lawyers say in a cease and desist letter? That the two logos are “substantially indistinguishable.” Oh really, now?

"While our client (Courage Campaign) does appreciate the irony of the suggestion in your letter that a logo of a family made up of a man, a woman, and two children is “substantially indistinguishable” from a logo of a family made up of two women and two children," responded the lawyers in a letter to the Prop 8 folks.

The Courage Campaign has no plans to stop.
