But there have been dozens of other states to pass same-sex marriage prohibitions and have their decision enter into law. How can what is untouched by judges — supposedly just fine — suddenly be found to be wrong.
Unlike what the leftist media is claiming -Prop 8 is different -unique, in that the federal judge overturned that law by claiming there was no rational basis for it. In essence, the judge claimed voters of religious faith voted based upon religious conviction and that this premise for denying homosexual sex practitioners the benefits of marriage was irrational and not allowed as premise for such public discourse.
THAT is why the Supremes have taken it -because primarily the state has trampled upon the inalienable individual right of religious freedom and secondarily the judge did not rule on the merits of the vote results but rather erroneously upon the eligibility of what premises a legitimate individual vote. The judge effectively denied the votes of those who voted for the 'wrong' reasons.
