    For those who do not believe constitutions are a "living" document...explain this:

    Judge's ruling expected in Calif gay marriage case

    SAN FRANCISCO – A federal judge has reached a decision in a landmark case on whether California's same-sex marriage ban violates the constitutional rights of gay men and lesbians.

    Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker will issue his ruling Wednesday afternoon, court spokeswoman Lynn Fuller said.

    His verdict comes in a lawsuit brought by two same-sex couples and the city of San Francisco seeking to overturn California's voter-approved Proposition 8, which outlawed gay marriage five months after the state Supreme Court legalized it.

    Exactly how does this prove the the Constitution is, or is not, a living document?
