    California Judges rules California ban on Gay Marriage is Unconstitutional

    This kind of unconstitutional action by judges is really starting to get on my nerves. The People of California voted by direct referendum to oppose gay marriage. I know I was there when alot of the preparation for the election was going on. First the Mayor of San Fransisco decides not to enforce the laws and now a judge is claiming the laws are unconstitutional. I dont care what their political beliefs are but they have a constitutional obligation to uphold the Constitution. It is against the Constitution for them to usurp the powers of the legislature and the people.

    If you continue to allow a minority of people to enforce their values on the American people you will cause a civil war. The people wont take it.

    The will of the people must be upheld. We have to push forward this federal ammendment.

    Watching California is watching a big pot of Liberalism in action...one can actually see how liberalism becomes totalitarianism step-by-step...kind of like an historical reenactment of socialism rising to become Nazi Germany.

    Because liberals consider themselves and their ideas superior to any other, they ignore the will of the people...all because they think they are "improving society" with their masterminding and that supposedly "justifies" their skirting the law and the vote of the people.

    That's a bit extreme... but I think I understand your point.

    It is my understanding that this is now going to the California State Supreme Ct in a year or so which would really set a precendent for other states?

    You're so right. The beating heart of liberalism is arrogance. The liberal path can only lead to tyranny. How many times must history repeat itself before something begins to dawn on us?

    That's my understanding, too. Once the state Constitution is amended, it'll be out of the hands of the courts and the legislature.

    It still represents a rather disturbing attempt to usurp the will of the people, though. Would that this arrogant attitude were an anomaly; it's not, by a DAMNED sight.

    One can only hope. The state Supreme Courts can act pretty fast compared to the process of legislating a new Constitutional Amendment, making it more of an uphill battle all the time. Besides, after Bush's pronouncement on the subject last year, has there been any further progress toward this goal?

    I would like to see the citizens of California backlash bigtime against their Court's ruling as it usurps the people's right to make law. Or will they just give up and let the liberals have their way once again?
