Skip to comments.California Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage ban nears (Prop 8 ruling)
Posted on 05/21/2009 11:03:40 AM PDT by CounterCounterCulture
The clock is ticking down on the California Supreme Court's imminent decision on whether to uphold Proposition 8, the voter-approved ballot measure restoring the state's ban on same-sex marriage.
Based on regulations that require the justices to rule within 90 days of oral arguments in a case, the Supreme Court's decision in the legal challenge to Proposition 8 now will fall on one of three remaining days: Tuesday or next Thursday, or June 1. The high court normally only rules on Mondays and Thursdays, but will issue rulings next Tuesday because of the Memorial Day holiday Monday.

Gee, I am on pins and needles waiting for what lame excuse the Californian Supreme Court will use to overturn the will of the people once again. We don’t need no stinking votes or legislature for that matter....
The SCOC will overturn a properly approved referendum. The question remains, will the “majority” make the appropriate response by demanding their impeachment?
What sort of dirt does Perez Hilton and the Lavender Mafia have on the justices?
California is unravelling fast.
ASk Rose Bird what she thinks.
For the umpteenth friggin’ time -
Proposition 8 DOES NOT BAN ANYTHING. It simply affirms what was settled custom and law in California - and everywhere else on planet Earth since the dawn of history - that marriage is an exclusively heterosexual thang.
The liberals find some judge somewhere to uphold some wacky new “civil right” for five minutes before it’s overturned, and then that five minute right becomes set in stone for all time, and any attempt to restore the sane status quo ante becomes a “ban” or some other kind of oppression. It’s a neat, albeit blatantly obvious and dishonest, tactic.
Feels like slower than molasses to me. I’ve been so eager for a ruling since I watched the oral arguments.
Cautiously optimistic on Prop 8. Not so sure on the pseudo-marriages that were performed before passage of Prop 8.
Anybody want to take any bets on what the “men in black” will rule?
I say they’re nothing less than political animals for whom the law and the California Constitution are totally irrelevant. They are weighing their re-election chances - - the votes of normal, decent, traditional American families (who haven’t yet escaped California) versus the votes and significant financial support of the goofball, hate-America, love-perversion lefties with the big mouths.
Good luck with all that, men in black.
LOL just like the libs screamed about a stem-cell ban!
What I don’t understand is, the CA Supremes already ruled that prop 8 could go forward. If it was not legit than why was it allowed to go on the ballot in the first place?
Peons, your betters are meeting together to decide your fate.
Spot on! The people will need to stand up once more and make it clear what they want.
I'm not so sure on invalidating those so called marriages either. As I see it, the same-sex marriages were invalid to start with and allowing same-sex marriages to occur is a huge mess they created themselves. We shall soon see how or if they're capable of cleaning up their own mess.
< /sarcasm >
I don’t follow your implication.
You are right.
They go morally bankrupt first, then financially bankrupt. It is rather evident now. What else is new.
Doesn't that say enough? The majority wants it... Isn't that how our governments are supposed to work. What the hell is going on?
