When it rains, it pours, no matter the will of the people of Kalifornia, no matter the votes against this, Liberalism marches on in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia..

I’m waiting for Ahhnold to come out and endorse the decision.

Should be interesting to read their opinion. The decision is over 170 pages.

I don’t speak lawyerese—can someone translate this ruling into plain basic English? Will this now go up to the SCOTUS?

At least now it may go to the Supreme Court.

"Applying this standard to the statutory classification here at issue, we conclude that the purpose underlying differential treatment of opposite-sex and same-sex couples embodied in California’s current marriage statutes — the interest in retaining the traditional and well-established definition of marriage — cannot properly be viewed as a compelling state interest for purposes of the equal protection clause, or as necessary to serve such an interest."

It won’t go to the Supreme Court because no federal question is involved. Marriage is a matter of state law which the State Supreme Court interprets. And I don’t see how this ruling could violate the federal Constitution. The matter will only come before the Supreme Court when a gay married California couple doesn’t have the marriage recognized by another state. Then it will be a federal issue.

But be of good cheer, Republicans. Nothing will get evangelicals to the polls to vote Republican like this ruling. Remember 2004?

I’d say the odds of the Next “ Big One “ just shot off the charts..

It doesn’t seem to matter how many times voters have spoken on any number of issues in California, and now a court that has 6 Republican Gub appointed Judges adds to the mess.

We need a Federal Marriage Amendment to the Constitution to end this judicial tyranny. It's a shame the GOP couldn't muster the cojones to get done when the supposedly pro-family GOP was in charge of Congress and the Executive.

It would have made for a great issue for a national election. Too many Mark Foleys, Larry Craigs, and Dick Cheney's in the GOP to do the right thing politically, I guess.
