IT is inevitable that this will go to SCOTUS anyway. Even if California doesn’t appeal to the 9th circuit, there will probably be gays moving to other states and they will demand that other states recognize their relationships legally too. This will result in another case going to the Supreme Court based on the Full Faith and Credit Clause which is much more of a slam dunk for the anti marriage forces than the pathetic progressive reasoning behind Judge Walker’s decision to strike down Prop.8. I guess, the only thing that you can hope for is that such a future case comes in a venue more favorable to real marriage. People need to stand up and fight this decision. Don’t take it sitting down.
How to fight? The two candidates for governor are supporters of gay marriage.
Pass another amendment? Not possible.
How about recall the governor, current or elected? Maybe.
Elect a prop 8 supportive state legislature? This would be the best fight strategy but hard to do and time-comsuming.
