    "SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Same-sex marriage advocates are pinning their hopes on California's highest court as it prepares to hear arguments on a trio of lawsuits seeking to overturn the state's voter-approved ban on gay unions.

    Thursday's three-hour hearing was expected to draw an audience much larger than the California Supreme Court's courtroom can accommodate."

    The People Of California Have Voted For The Second Time - Not the courts want to overthrow the true definition of marriage once again.

    "marriage |ˈmarij|
    noun
    1 the formal union of a man and a woman, typically recognized by law, by which they become husband and wife."

    These same-sex marriage advocates are obviously racists since blacks in California voted overwhelmingly against same-sex marriage.

    The people don't want it, so screw them! We'll get the judges to force them to accept it!

    Why shouldn't gays be able to marry and serve in the army?

    It seems ridiculous to me.

    Because the PEOPLE don't want them to.

    Seems pretty simple to me. It's called "democracy".

    I'm a bit confused as to why the California Supreme Court thinks they have jack to say about an Amendment to the state Constitution. You can't exactly declare it to be contrary with itself, so it seems a bit outside their jurisdiction.

    You can have a civil union, you can serve in the military if you are gay you just have to not try to shove your sexual orientation down some one else's throat.

    This isn't about tolerance any more. Tolerance is owed every American citizen. But tolerance simply means we don't shoot you on sight, or beat you within an inch of your life every time you go out in public. This is about ACCEPTANCE and beyond. This is about trying to get gays to feel better about themsleves by forcing everyone else to love (not in the sexual sense of course) them. Unfortunately, for this agenda, love cannot be forced.
