#SSM was illegal in the state of California. The fruit-loop mayor of San Franciso gave the green light for the city to issue #SSM licenses - ignoring state law.<quoted text>
Sorry asswhipe, but its time for YOU to pay attention and get a history lesson. Nickle version.
When the question of SSM first came up, it was in 2001 in San Francisco. In 2004, licenses were granted under the California Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law to all groups. In 2004, after the Massachusetts Supreme Court granted SSM based on the same thing, California began issuing licenses.
Some freaks like yourself decided they wanted a referendum, and got it onto a ballot - WHERE IT SHOULDNT HAVE EVER BEEN TO BEGIN WITH. As the SCOTUS pointed out, those that started that bullshit, HAD NO STANDING. It would have been up to the legislature to bring it up to a vote, and they declined to do so because - effectively - they KNEW its not up to people to vote on others civil rights.
The fact that 52% of people that voted tried to deny others their civil rights is meaningless, since its not something ANYONE gets to vote on.
As someone else pointed out, nobody "stripped" anyone of anything. That 52% had no right to BEGIN WITH to be voting on other's civil rights - AS WAS CLEAR IN THE STATE'S CONSTITUTION.
Now, you're homophobic ass keeps saying "GAY" Judge Vaughn, as if his being gay means ANYTHING.
It doesn't. Black judges sit on cases with black defendants, straight judges preside over cases regarding straight couples, Catholic judges oversee cases with Catholic defendants. His being gay has ZERO to do with ANYTHING .....
.... OTHER than to spotlight your own stupidity and homophobia that is.
Now you can bitch and whine and pout like a pathetic child, but the FACT is that whether YOU like it or not, SSM is there to stay in California, and its coming to EVERY state soon enough - INCLUDING YOURS.
In FACT, in YOUR states case, your kind want to CHANGE their constitution to suit your needs. The odds of THAT happening now is slim and none.
BTW Sparky? In California today, the APPROVAL rating for SSM is at an all time high of 61 percent - and going higher....
California Supreme Court nullified those fake marriages. Gays sued state, and in May 2008 California Supreme Court overturned state ban on SSM. The Nov 2008 referendum (prop 8)yielded a 52% majority in favor of a state constitutional amendemnt banning SSM.
Gays challenged Prop 8 at the California Supreme Court, but the court upheld the amendment.
Gays then filed lawsuit against the state, and took the matter to the federal court of appeals.....where GAY judge Vaughn Walker was waiting. He obviously (Read: He's gay) ruled in favor of gay marriage....silencing the 7 million voices of California who said HELL NO during the democratic process (referendum).
One GAY judge intervened in democratic process to silence The People.
GAY judge activism. You couldn't get #SSM passed by the people, so you had to have help from your GAY judge.
