Silly, silly David, when will you ever learn? State constitutions can not violate rights guaranteed under the US Constitution, no matter how large of a majority might want to. Prop 8 and all the other amendments violate equal protection, regardless of the level of scrutiny applied. The best you can hope for is that the states only lose the authority to deny recognition of same sex marriages legally performed in other states, they might all have to be offering same sex marriage before the first day of Summer.

Hey David Moore, just because you're still bitter that your ex-wife won't let you anywhere near your own kids anymore doesn't mean you should take it out on the rest of us.

No wonder you're divorced. Enjoy the closet! LOLAY!

<quoted text>Buttercup, Prop 8 has been found to be unconstitutional twice now and likely headed down for the third time and possibly taking every other state constitutional amendment barring same sex marriage along with it. It violates equal protection under any standard of scrutiny. As far as appealing to the dictionary goes, you may want to invest in a more recent edition, you'd be amazed how they have all pretty much changed for the better these last few years.
Not by the supreme court of America, only the gay California court. The people said no, but the marxist judges ruling Californa are over turning the will of the people. Aren't you proud.......Move to Saudia Arabia and try to convenience being abnormal is normal.

Sweetie, this isn't even the first time California will have a state constitutional amendment overturned by the Supreme Court. It has happened before, back in the 60's, the voters of California approved a nullification of the federal Fair Housing Act as part of their Constitution. It passed by a greater margin than Prop 8 and still got overturned. The Court of Appeals ruling in the case was based on Romer v Evans, a case which overturned an amendment to the Constitution of Colorado. You've heard of the Loving decision haven't you? It killed six state constitutional amendments with a footnote. I really don't mind breaking this to you dear, but you really have absolutely no clue as to what you are ranting about.

If people like you only learned to mind their business you would hardly notice people who have a different sexual preference.

One has to wonder, why are you so attracted to homosexuals from afar?

Show me where in the constitution marriage is listed. I personally feel that the government has no business in the marriage business period. As for the tax breaks and special perks in federal law for married couples- that's all BS.

There are over 70,000 Legal same sex marriages with many raising children,in the many states where they are now fully legal! They are also paying taxes for benefits they are not receiving! Does this sound fair? So in reality they are subsidizing the marriage benefits that you receive and enjoy! I guess you owe them! SO what is your bogus reasoning again and why is the fair and moral thing to do?
