The issue is not "marriage", the issue is the definition of "marriage". In not ONE instance has the SCOTUS ever claimed anything other than the Union of a man and a woman to be a marriage. Could that definition change? Sure, but the question we really should ask ourselves is- do we want a federal court which lacks the authority of the Constitution to define marriage to make that decision?
Remember, they are also going to hear the DOMA case, which specifically was decided based on the premise that the regulation and definition of marriage rested with the State.
You are in for one sad day coming up pretty quick.

On Prop 8 there is really only 2 likely outcomes

First most likely, the narrow definition that will uphold the California courts in the specific case against Prop 8, which will allow Gays to marry again legally in California

The second slightly less likely is the broad definition that will overturn such legislations across all 50 states, which will not mandate gay marriage, but will overturn the prohibition of further legislation allowing them to, and the dominoes will roll from there.

Upholding Prop 8 isnít really even in the cards, the state doesnít support it, if it was reintroduced it would fail in a landslide, and there is question over the backers legal right to even defend it.

LOL!!!

It will work itself out, I have been telling Gay folks for years that it is only a matter of time. In the scheme of things this one is rolling a whole lot faster than similar issues in the past.

Amazingly fast, which is why I suppose that some folks are so scared of it.

It doesnít hurt anyone, it certainly didnít hurt my marriage for gays to be able to marry.

We have set ourselves up for that, we donít have enough limitations on what kind of bills can be voted upon.

I can put a bill on the ballot that denies blue eyed people the vote, and passed by the majority of brown eyed people.

but it would be rightfully overturned as unconstitutional.

The problem is allowing such nasty out of state funded propositions on the ballot in the first place.

example

Save the Horses proposition - A proposition prohibiting the raising of horses for human consumption, Put on the ballot and paid for by Arizona ranchers that raise horses in Arizona for human consumption who donít want competition from California

Prop 8 should never have ever been allowed on the ballot in the first place. Paid for by strong arm tactics of an out of state church that saw a window of opportunity in a single year, that would close the following year.

Put on the ballot today.. Prop 8 would go down in flames.

Or you could vote for the candidate who supports the tyranny of the majority on taxes. The 99% can raise taxes on the 1% so their own taxes don't have to be raised. NICE!

Sure, she's sitting right here. I keep her privacy especially with psychos like you around. I'm certainly not going to post her picture and address like you did. By the way, your wife is pocchari and not half bad.

So we got my personal info you were so desperate to know out of the way, tell me if someone doesn't have a wife or girlfriend does that make the wrong?

You being an internet troll singled my wife out so it's only fair you crying bitch.
LOL!!!

As it is I highly doubt youe have either. A girlfriend or a wife but that's just my opinion.

And if you're to bash gays marrying then you in fact might want to have a little experience in the subject so yeah fuckwad.....I'll include your personal life given you think it within your rights to talk about others.

BTW...how many PSI does it take for your "girlfriend" to be up to speed on a cold Friday night?

LOL!!!!

Don't lie. Produce one post where I bashed gays.

You brought up my g.f. first. And many other posters wives g.f.s or b.f.s. So don't cry when I bring up yours. You posted pictures of her for chrissakes. What a dope. I'm sure she appreciates it!

We won't wait for evidence of any any bashing by me. Because there isn't any, liar.

WOOHOO Dan!

Enough of your prying about my personal life. I keep it private, and it's irrelevant to discuss it here. Especially with a psycho like you who has anger management problems.

I'm a "Victim"? I'm "Crying?" What are you talking about boy? Give evidence or stop lying. It's all you've got. Pathetic.

Dan. What a jerk!
