California Upholds Proposition 8



Very disappointing news from California that the Supreme Court has upheld Proposition 8, outlawing any new gay marriages, but allowing existing marriages to stand. There must be a new movement to have Proposition 8 overturned in the next election cycle. As I said before, civil and human rights should NEVER be put up for a vote.

I saw this post up at twitter. How could anyone listen to that eloquent man and not agree with him? You too, Collin, are a light for the cause.

It's just incredible that this wasn't overturned!

This is one of those unfortunate moments where what is legal and what is just wind up at two different points. The Supreme Court was not in a position to overturn a constitutional amendment, since their job is to interpret the constitution as it stands.

Once it comes up for a vote, this execrable amendment can be overturned and justice restored.

I do wonder, though, how the law would apply to couples married in Iowa who subsequently move (or return) to California? It's my understanding that one does not need to be a resident of Iowa to get married there.

Hi Coll. No, Sheila, it never should have been put up for a vote!Civil Rights are civil rights--and that IS a component of the US Constitution, so the Supreme Court should rule on this......For legality, and justice:
Marriage Rights for ALL!

As you know Collin, I am so upset by this....if we can't get Prop 8 passed in California, how could we ever think a gay rights amendment will pass in Georgia with Sonny Perdue leading the pack of white Christian assholes
