"The California Supreme Court today upheld Proposition 8's ban on same-sex marriage but also ruled that gay couples who wed before the election will continue to be married under state law," the L.A. Times writes.
Of course there are protests already planned and they are going to try and get this overturned by vote in 2010. So here's the deal. In California domestic partners (this would include gay couples) have EVERY SINGLE RIGHT that us hetero-sexual marrieds have. I mean every single right. The only right they don't have is the label "married". That's right up there with girls taking the boy scouts to court to for not admitting girls.
The liberals are just mad that California is one of the MOST liberal states in the union, yet they can't seem to cram gay marriage down our throats. In this liberal hurricane season we are in, it's nice to hear that there are still surviving conservative values smoldering in the Golden State.
Personally I have voted for many conservative issues over the years in California that have passed overwhelmingly and been overturned by the the state supreme court. For the first time in a long time I actually feel like I have a voice in California.
