Right ruling for a stupid law


Let me make two things perfectly clear.  First, the California Supreme Court ruled correctly today.  The Court does not have the power to overrule a California constitutional amendment passed by the voters.  The Court did not say that gay marriage was wrong, it said that the amendment was constitutionally legal.  The second thing I want to make perfectly clear is that Proposition 8 is a really idiotic law, and if you support it then you are basically un-American.  How can you be truly supportive of our national Constitution if you basically ignore that whole equal protection thing?  Oh yeah, and that Declaration of Independence “all men are created equal” clause too. 

And you are really pathetic too.  Seriously, you are worried about the marriage of two people that have nothing to do with you.  Are you just that bored that you need to break down relationships of other people?  Try focusing on your own.  Or take up a hobby.  Or move to Iran, there are no homosexuals there.   

Anyway, this is a moot point, as brilliantly stated by Mark Morford of the San Francisco Chronicle

    “Gay marriage is a foregone conclusion. It's a done deal. It's just a matter of time. For the next generation in particular, equal rights for gays is not even a question or a serious issue, much less a sinful hysterical conundrum that can only be answered by terrified Mormons and confused old people and inane referendums funded by same. It's just obvious, inevitable, a given.” 

It really is too.  Students don’t see gay marriage as a really big deal, and yea, that means your kid.  So whatever ends up happening; the Supreme Court diving down to grab the case (I’d love it, but not going to happen), another referendum (more likely), or nothing at all, this all ends fairly quickly because the generations coming up are more and more tolerant.  Actually, they are more and more American.

Oh, and someone might want to stop bashing Meghan McCain and start listening to the woman.  I’m watching the GOP go down in a flaming fireball and people like McCain have an excellent idea where a new platform could emerge.
