No, they decided their was no jurisdiction, the government refused to defend the law. SCOTUS didn't decide on the constitutionality of the law, they voided the Ninth District Court's decision. So, the two plaintiffs win, the court permits their marriage and no other.

Obviously you missed the new; ANY same-sex couple can now get married in California.

Unconstitutional laws should never be defended.

Equal protection & due process are in the constitution.
If the feds are going to recognize one marriage, they must recognize all marriages.
Federal law trumps state law.
The state doesn't have to recognize our marriages (yet) but they can't prevent the federal govt from recognizing them.
I guess since you can't show me proof then it's not there. Marriage is a state issue and the definition is validated by 4000 years and nature. Anything else is perversion and also a abomination. Nothing you do or say can make it anything else.

They can be joined but it is not marriage pookie. Nothing you do or say can change the definition. Californication is and has been a hot bed of perversion for a long time with Hollywood and Frisco leading the way. It is a moronic mess that is bankrupted by the liberals that dominate through unions and Hollywood's money.

The majority didn't find California's Proposition 8 unconstitutional, they found no standing or jurisdiction to judge so they voided the Ninth Circuit's opinion. They shirked.

And yet we CAN get married.
And yet we ARE getting married.
And yet we DO get state benefits.
And yet we DO get federal benefits.

Looks like I don't need to do anything at all except enjoy my equal rights.

My response was to your claim that only the plaintiffs involved in the Prop 8 case could marry but no one else.

But yes, the SCOTUS delayed for the moment ruling a right to marry for same-sex couples. That ruling will come soon enough with the cases pending in Hawaii, Nevada, or Michigan.

It's only a matter of time, now that the SCOTUS ruled in the DOMA case that denying marriage rights & benefits violates our due process & equal protection under the 5th amendment.

Even the infamous bigoted anti-gay Justice Scalia admitted so in his DOMA dissent.

Unless we have a Constitutional Amendment to protect marriage, I fear "WeTheSheeple" is right.

I'm not sure just who or what you're trying to "protect marriage" from, but you definitely don't have a federal constitutional right to deny marriage to same-sex couples.

No, I'm saying if the SCOTUS found it to be unconstitutional, then it's unconstitutional. If the SCOTUS found it to be constitutional, then it's constitutional.

That's how our system of government works.
