I saw that, it’s a long document, way at the end.. appearance’s sake, imo, she was the Gub’s appointee and he likes tokeep his track record clean, damn near anyone he appoints is suspect. You can research her history or maybe someone else will.

Key sentence:

“...we conclude that to the extent the current California statutory
provisions limit marriage to opposite-sex couples, these statutes are
unconstitutional.”

Earlier they also stated that this conclusion states that the initiative process cannot be used to change any laws challenging this subject.

Of course the AG could still choose to end the official use of the word “marriage” and all such unions would then be properly called domestic partnerships; maybe that would restart the circus.

I’m going to marry my gun and take it everywhere I go. If I can take my wife to a school or courtroom, I oughta be able to take my gun since I’m married to her.

Ummmmm, which gun do I marry?

So many choices....

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

We are already experiencing "earthquake weather" today in FRisco.

If the legislature now strikes “between a man and a woman” and does not replace it with something like “between one human and another” things will get interesting.

And Sanda Day says it is wrong to target supreme court judges and all judges even if they make very stupid decisions?
These clowns need to be taken to the public square and held in stocks and have rotten veggies thrown at them at the very least.

"California Supreme Court Backs Gay Marriage"

Of course this also means that they also back Gay Divorce along with all of the love and joy associated with it.

I wonder what the stats are on how many gay marriages end in divorce.

>>>>>ALREADY THERE! Over a year ago I saw a man out there wanting to get married to a tree. The thing is, you couldn’t tell if he was serious or trying to make a point and I thought, in Cesspoolifornication...how would you know?

the fundamental constitutional right to form a family relationship

This must be in the "penumbra" becaue it's nowhere in the California constitution as written.

If you prohibit marriage on the basis of divorce rate, we’ll have a lot of people who can’t get married.

Too many Mark Foleys, Larry Craigs, and Dick Cheney's in the GOP to do the right thing politically, I guess.

What did Dick Cheney do? I missed that one. And why didn't you put apostrophes into "Foleys" and "Craigs?"

Dick Cheney supports homo-marriage.

What about prop 22? 60% said no to homosexual marriage.

What good is the ballot?

I was thinking about the same thing, the gays will now have to deal with divorce. Somehow, I think that after a few years of watching the trials of divorce, many gays are going to decide that getting married was not worth the effort.

I haven’t known any male gay couples who got married, but I knew one lesbian couple who were married in Canada, and got divorced, they used one of those professional mediators to determine the division of property and child visitation. Yes, they had a child through artificial insemination. It was the mother of the child who decided that she didn’t want to be gay any longer.

Ya’ know...I truly don’t care that there are homosexuals in our world, our Country, or our State.

I really, and honestly do not care if they “do” each other all day long, and into the night...in the privacy and BEHIND the closed doors and curtained windows of their abode. It bothers me, not in the least.

My problem is my Constitutionally guaranteed right to pursue happiness has been abrogated by a Court in favor of the homosexuals’. And that ain’t right.

I have lived 55 years abiding by the Constitution, and the cultural traditions of this Country that we’ve had since, even before, it’s founding. And now, I’m forced into relinquishing my right to appease this minority group of immoral, unclean, unsafe, tools of satan.

Worse, I’m forced to pay for it, and I’m NOT even ALLOWED to voice my opinion in public; Or to or within earshot of, the object(s) of my discomfort, lest I be arrested and charged with hatred, which of course, is immoral also, but is made a crime by the same appeasers that force me to subjugate my happiness and rights to the more immoral minority filth and disease spreaders. And as a fine how do you do, kick in the pants, to top it all off, our children are being taught that their parents are bad people, and the same sexers, homesexual knee benders, are righteous and, gee whiz, just good, decent folks!
