I have no links yet.... but same sex marriage is a go in California again.
Yep. The federal appeals court has just ruled Proposition 8, which banned same sex marriage in California, is unconstitutional.
I will post a link to the decision as soon as it becomes publicly available.
This is sure to move on to the US Supreme Court.
California gay marriage ban struck down by federal appeals court - San Jose Mercury News
I have no problem with gay marriage, but the people of California voted not to have it in their state. If judges are just going to overturn the will of the people then why vote at all?
What a SHOCK. The extremely leftist 9th Circuit Court has ruled in favor of another leftist agenda. I just can't believe it!
It will all come down to can you vote on what rights others are allowed to have
Basically, people who are not homosexual and who squirm at the very idea of homosexual sex got to vote on what rights should be extended to homosexuals
I am neither gay nor do I live in California.
So I don't really care.
Homosexuals didn't get to vote?
It will come down to "does the State have a compelling interest in legislating the activities of people in the bedroom" and the answer is yes. Unless you think Polygamy and Incest between consenting adults is ok.
But this issue is not even about sex it is about the ability of the abnormal to marry. And the decision will also hinge on the concept of " what defines marriage". And do the States have a compelling interest in regulating the institution of Marriage. The simple answer is YES the State DOES have a compelling interest. The follow on question being does the State have a compelling interest to define what is and is not marriage. And again the answer is yes they do.
The final decision will be nearly unanimous though, due to the political climate and the cowardice of many the Supreme Court will most likely vote 7-2 or 9-0 to agree with the 9th.
