    Problem being that we aren't a Democracy. We're a Republic.

    Democracy has very little to do with the courts.......unless you think stacking the State court or the Supreme court with enough votes to get what you want. But then again that's not exactly true Democracy.

    Courts were never intended to replace the will of the people or the other brancjhes of the Government. This trial is a farce and a sham. Hopefully when it gets to the Supreme Court 5 of them will have the balls to stop this shit.

    Wrong...the court system can overturn the will of the people when the will of the people engages in denying people civil rights.

    WRONG. The Courts and ONLY the Supreme Court , can rule on Constitutionality of issues but has no power to create from whole cloth rights or laws or powers of any branch of Government or for the people. Gays have no Constitutionally protected right to marry, which the 9th Court will assume they do from the get go, as does the Judge in this particular case.

    That is creating from whole cloth rights that do not exist. That is Legislating from the bench.

    They have just as much right to marry as everyone else does. So yes, the courts may interpret the constitutionality of Prop 8.

    Hopefully when the Supreme Court gets done you and your idiot friends will find out that the Courts do NOT get to fabricate rights on a whim or for politically correct reasons.

    It has nothing to do with political correctness...in fact just the opposite. You want to deny people the rights you enjoy simply because they are not politically correct.

    You are one sad puppy.

    No

    They have a right to be together as anyone else does... there is no "right to marry"
