Today, the proponents of the Amendment, acting as intervenors in the defense of the named defendants, filed for a writ of certiorari from the Supreme Court of the United States appealing the 2-1 Court of Appeals ruling which determined that having had extended the right to marriage to those who want to marry their same sex, the voters of California, through means of the amendment, had violated the 14th Amendment right to equal protection of those who are Lesbian and Gay in California.

The chance that this will be one of the cases that will be going before the Court this session are between slim and none. The Court will be more than happy to sacrifice California's amendment by not hearing the appeal, because it gets them out of having to answer the really big question of, if California's amendment isn't constitutional, what about the others?

The Court will announce what cases they will be hearing on September 24th, legally recognized same sex marriage in California will likely return on the 25th.

Typical homo logic

I wasn't aware disagreeing with your idea of marriage was considered "eliminate rights of Americans just because you are disgusted with something!!!"

So using your logic, being disgusted with people who smoke crack is considered "eliminating" their right to smoke crack?

PLUUEEEZ. Don't make me laugh

Or the ones who SHOULD NOT have kids either.
Except you queers are so bent on destroying the sanctity of marriage & family, just for your own personal benefit/s. Every country around the world defines marriage as a union between a MAN & a WOMAN. In other words, not 2 dudes, not 2 chicks, not a adult & a child, not an adult & an animal, & not an adult & a toaster. You can say your married all you want, but the truth is marriage is define as between a man & a woman. A man & a woman can make babies, you queers can't! The anatomy of the human reproductive organs speak for themselves---your idea of marriage is a FLUKE. So expect me to chuckle & laugh when you say you & your partner are "married", or should I say "civil-unioned" LOL

I say let's quit using the term "gay" (happy) to describe them. There's nothing "gay" about them. They are angry, bitter folks. Just call them what they are---homosexuals.

Yeah I wonder about that. Why is it queers are so interested in children? Seems to me the pedophile apple doesn't fall far from the homosexual tree. Homosexuals have been engaging in pedophilia since Ancient Rome. Hell, homosexuals like Dan Savage believes there are "good pedophiles" in the world. I mean, who the hell promotes that kind of propaganda, but it's much worse because he's a sodomite. I can't believe this guy works with Obama.

The homosexual agenda will doom all our kids

HY-Larious!

Only a cuzin-f*ck'd Texan would think the KKK and Nazis are liberals.

Sure looks like that Texas GOP platform to eliminate critical thinking from school curiculums is already in place.

You do your state proud!
