You may think your opinion is law, it is not.

California currently recognizes 18,000 same sex couples, if you didnít know that before... go look it up, it does.

No marriages were revoked, they just stopped issuing new licenses

They specifically did not revoke old licenses

Everyone understands now that you are unaware of the fact

You donít have to keep repeating it, this isnít an argument.

They are recognized by the state, that is not a question. You are unaware they are recognized, we got that.

Proposition 22 was a law enacted by California voters in March 2000 to restrict marriages to only those between opposite-sex couples. In May 2008, it was struck down by the California Supreme Court as contrary to the state constitution.
The Act was proposed by means of the initiative process. It was authored by the state senator William "Pete" Knight and is known informally as the Knight initiative. Voters adopted the measure on March 7, 2000 with 61% in favor to 39% against.[1] This large margin of victory surprised many, since a Field Poll immediately prior to the election estimated support at only 53%, with 40% against and 7% undecided.[2]
The Act added Section 308.5 of the Family Code, which read "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California". Because the Act was an ordinary statute, it could be struck down if it were inconsistent with the state constitution. This occurred on May 15, 2008 when the state supreme court, ruling on In re Marriage Cases, declared that same-sex couples had a constitutional right to marry.[3] This 4Ė3 decision invalidated Proposition 22 and some related California laws.
Despite the brevity of Proposition 22 (it added only fourteen words to the Family Code) its effect provoked debate long after its passage. In November 2008 California voters overturned the In re Marriage Cases decision by approving an amendment of the state constitution called Proposition 8.

Your "law" is just an opinion, plain and simple. Prop H8 was overturned, and you KNOW it.

Quit whining, and move to a different place if you disagree with Marriage Equality. I hear Iran, Saudi Arabia, or certain Southern states would LOVE to have you as a citizen.

Oh, and just an fyi: my WIFE (we are a happily-married lesbian FAMILY) and I will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary next month. Sorry, you're NOT invited to the celebration.

Y'all still pining away for buttpirates rights? what a waste of time and energy. When the muslims take over, gay marriage will end up where it rightfully belongs, in the septic tank of historically stupid ideas! Even the animals know better!

Not to worry I won't flash your party. Accept that your engagement is sick. Ask Sodom And Gomorrah. Oh, that's right, God destroyed them.

There is no argument, there is a fact that you are ignorant of, thatís why there is no point to it.
