SACRAMENTO (AP) California prison officials have confirmed that inmates can get married to someone of the same sex under certain conditions.
Michael Stainer, director of the adult institutions division for the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, issued a memo on Friday stating that the U.S. Supreme Court decision that made same-sex marriages legal again in the state in June also applies to prisoners.

Since when did same-sex marriage become law in California?
I thought voters passed Proposition 8?
Isn’t that just wonderful..The world is in a tail spin and all we can worry about is two queers and their sex habits..This and all of it is so disgusting making a mockery of marriage..I hope they enjoy jumping flames in hell..
Voters??? You’re kidding, right? I mean, you think this is a democracy or something???
In communists controlled California voters have no voice. This is a gay free zone. Ever check San Francisco.
cell mates can be cell mates.....
Do you, Mike Hawk, take Heywood Jablomy...
Why, exactly, do we allow Mexi-gay-fornia to be a state?
Do folks realize how much money we could save by kicking them out and making them pay for themselves?
In any case, the “big one” should take care of things shortly.
Who here has been to San Fransisco?
I have a chance to go there for work, but I dont want to bring my kids for a small vacation there if it is THAT ‘gay’
I teach them to be tolerant, I believe people are born that way (I have a gay family member, and we all knew it from when she was a child) and I love her to pieces... But to REJECT gay promotion and agenda because it is really about power and NOT love/feelings.
The defenders of Prop 8 aren’t taking this lying down. They are back in court as we speak.
CA gets less in return than it pays in to the National Treasury...something along the lines of 70 cents on every dollar, why don’t you look deep into the so called “conservative south” to see who’s not paying their freight sport.
So sick and tired of all you holier than thou, so called “conservatives” here on FR who are the epitome of hypocrisy, who relish wallowing in attitudes reminiscent of pissant, petulant liberals who think they’re crap don’t stink.
Just one more reason why I contribute less and less to this site...it’s a shark tank, folks just looking to kick others while they’re down, folks who are supposed to be FRiends and allies. I guess that’s what happens when your privates shrink, gotta compensate for the lack of “stature” somehow.
And I’m not even from here...just a temporary resident.
Can the pay the licensing fees with cigarettes?
Please! How in the world can you know a child will grow up to have a sexual attraction disorder?
They did, but the court overturned it if I remember correctly.
RE: They did, but the court overturned it if I remember correctly.
OK, the courts overturned it... THAT STILL DOES NOT MAKE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LEGAL.
Did the California legislature pass a law making it legal?
Watch for a lot of infidelity-based divorces.
Well, you have to look at the bright side.
If you have some one out recklessly careening a car at a high rate of speed, they will crash sooner than later and the resulting carnage makes for a great driver’s education film on safe driving.
The worse the carnage, the more effective the film
Not the worst of outcomes unless they crash into you.
California wants to hit the wall head on at full speed, pedal to the metal so the impact will be spectacular but I don’t live in California
I have a chance to go there for work, but I dont want to bring my kids for a small vacation there if it is THAT gay
You have no idea.
