Prop 8 is doomed, one way or the other.
Either the Supreme Court will get it right and uphold it being overturned, or it will go back on the ballot and Prop 8 will be soundly and easily defeated.
And if not we'll keep voting on it over and over until comes out the way Big D wants it dammit!

Let's redo the presidential election too!

Good, if you don’t understand this, then you should not vote.
I could get the majority of brown eyed people to vote on a ballot measure to deny blue eyed people the vote, it would be overturned as unconstitutional ( and rightly so )
Same thing here, a majority voted to deny a minority a right they already possessed, it will and should be overturned.
So the color of one's eyes is equatable with one's gender? The "minority" already posed the right long before prop 22, and prop 8.

Yes that is why the wrong of Prop 8 wil be righted.
The purpose of Prop 8 was to correct the wrong of those who defied the voters of prop 22.

If the state didn't require a license to get the benefits that are given to marriage, we wouldn't be here.

<quoted text>
You don't obey because you hate God and give him the finger:
For hundreds of years biblicists have been lecturing people on the importance of adhering to the Bible's teachings on ethics, manners, and morality. They quote Jesus and Paul profusely, with a liberal sprinkling of Old Testament moralisms. The problem with their approach lies not only in an oft-noted failure to practice what they preach, but an equally pronounced tendency to ignore what the Bible itself, preaches. Biblicists practice what can only be described as "selective morality". What they like, they expound; what they don't like, they ignore, even though the validity or strength of one is no less than that of the other. That which is palatable and acceptable is supposedly applicable to all; while that which is obnoxious, inconvenient, or self-denying is only applicable to those addresed 2,000 years ago. They enjoy quoting the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, and some of Paul's preachings, for example, but don't pretend to heed other, equally valid, maxims. The following examples show the selectivity of apologetic morality.
First, a true follower of Jesus would have to be extremely poor--as poor as the proverbial churchmouse. The Bible makes this quite clear:
•(a) "...none of you can be my disciple unless he gives up everything he has" (Luke 14:33);
•(b) "If you want to be perfect, go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor and you will have riches in heaven" (Matt. 19:21);
•(c) "Sell your possessions and give alms" (Luke 12:33);
•(d) "But give what is in your cups and plates to the poor, and everything will be clean for you" (Luke 11:41);
•(e) "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt,.... But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.... for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matt. 6:19-21);
•(f) "How hardly shall they that have riches enter to the kingdom of God" (Mark 10:23);
•(g) "Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God" (Matt. 19:23-24);
•(h) A certain ruler told Jesus that he had obeyed all the commandments from his youth up. But, Jesus said, "Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me" (Luke 18:22, Mark 10:21),
•and (i) Paul said, "For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as refuse, in order that I may gain Christ" (Phil. 3:8 RSV)
Never have given God the finger. God no longer walks on the planet but he's watching your every move. If anyone's ever gotten the finger from me it's because they're worthy and deserving of it.

Wrong there are 18,000 legally married and legally recognized same sex marriages in California today.

They did not revoke any marriages, that would have been a legal nightmare.

At the most, his words are hear-say. You took them and formed your own 'conclusions'. I simply point out that lack of character and accurately term it as rooted in bigotry and hatred.
But hey, if you want to keep exposing yourself, it's your reputation.
Sheesh.
