Schwarzenegger urges resumption of same-sex marriages

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger weighed into the same-sex marriage legal battle Friday, filing a motion demanding gays and lesbians be allowed to resume tying the knot immediately.

Schwarzenegger's legal bid came as a federal judge who overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriage mulled a request by supporters of the ban to bar further homosexual weddings until the appeals process had been exhausted.

"The Administration believes the public interest is best served by permitting the Court's judgement to go into effect, thereby restoring the right of same-sex couples to marry in California," Schwarzenegger's motion said.

"Doing so is consistent with California's long history of treating all people and their relationships with equal dignity and respect.

"As the Court has pointed out, California has already issued 18,000 marriage licenses to same-sex couples without suffering any resulting harm."

It was not immediately clear when Judge Vaughn Walker would rule on when same-sex weddings would resume, having initially indicated that a decision could be made on Friday.

AHRNALD if 7 million votes as the will of the people, do not count I think the few votes that got you elected (including mine unfortunately)should also should not count.

Pack up and leave as the will of the people in Kallyfornia no longer means anything.

“Arnold and Bawney up a tree
K i s s i n g”.

Strange when a Governor promotes homosexual activity as
being mainstream. You don’t think it’s possible do you?????

I think the GOP needs to toss another one out of the club. Just like girly-man Linsey Lohan Graham

In a liberal brain, 7 million is a minority in a state full of fruits with a population of 35 million. Full speed ahead, damn the electoral process!!!

It’s a shame that he got elected governor of California.

If not for that, he would have faded away from the public spotlight as he is now too old for bodybuilding and action films.

Reason #405 why foreign born folks should never be eligible for US President.

I mean, hell, look what the current foreign-born one is doing to the country.
