A Change In The Right Direction

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

Finally, some good news regarding California's Proposition 8!

A legislative committee has just backed legal efforts to try and overturn Prop H8te (that ridiculous proposition striping gays of their full rights and banning same-sex marriage).

The California Assembly Judiciary Committee had a 7-3 vote on Tuesday to put the legislature on record as opposing Prop H8te.

We'll have to wait until March 5th, though, when oral arguments will take place in the California Supreme Court.

The state Senate will be considering a companion measure in the weeks to come as well.

Baby steps!

    I just have to ask the question. If the NO's had won, would Perez be making fun of the people who voted yes in the event they were trying to overturn the outcome? Why do I get the feeling that Perez would say something like, "The people have spoken! Get over it H8ters!" or something like that?



  12. 12

    CREO QUE TODOS MERECEMOS LOS MISMO DERECHO.. ASTA TU PEREZ QUE TE GUSTA EL ARROZ CON POPOTE, TODO SOMOS IGUALES Y TODOS DEERIAMO EN TENER LOS MISMOS DERECHOS AUNQUE A UNOS LES GUSTE ANDAR DE REVERSA Y A OTRAS LES GUSTE LA EMPANADA. NO HAY QUE DESCRIMINAR GENTE….. PEREZ I STILL DON'T LIKE YA

    As much as I hate that the proposition passed, the people of California spoke and changed their constitution. They have a process to change it and it was followed. I would hate to see the legislature overturn the will of the people and their constitution. It would destroy democracy. The only thing to do is to put up a new prop next year to change the constitution once again.

    Re: LG is simply..Irresistible! – 12 I don't believe so. I do believe he was all about love and acceptance. Turn the other cheek and all, but my feeling the cheek was above shoulders. :) Love!



  16. 16

    Great! You cant put other people to decide for the rights of other people (different than them). The whole voting process was the biggest stupidity ever.



  17. 17

    Perez with all shit you spew you dont deserve to have the right to get married. Im not talking about everyone else JUST YOU!



  18. 18


    um…

    equal rights will be granted ONLY after they are EARNED

    if gays (especially gay males) would at least try to not have
    3 ways / open "relationships" and all that other foul nonsense

    then perhaps they would have gotten their rights back in Nov

    but…NOPE.

    not gonna happen now, or anytime soon

    just deal….



  19. 19

    It is beyond wrong to allow the majority to vote on the rights of the minority. Case in point: If the civil rights movement of the 60s and 70s were left to a vote by the American people, I doubt it would have passed. It's ludicrous to think that the people should decide which civil and human rights should be shared by all. Prop 8 is about equality and knowledge. Get informed. Intolerance and stupidity are not cute. I have heard the opposing side and none of their arguments make sense. Their arguments go like this: I'm stupid and will conveniently use the bible when it supports my ignorance. I haven't read the bible in its entirety but I like what it says in that one place.



  20. 20

    Wrong Meme; the constitution's job is to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. When it comes to rights, it's not "majority rules."



  21. 21

    The bible mentions homosexuality 12 times and adultery 52 times… Should I wait for the next proposition to state that if someone commits adultery she/he can no longer marry. Oh, wait, that won't happen because it's not really what's in the bible I'm fighting for. I'm simply fighting to support my limited understandings and fears. Straight Ally for Life… just stop talking about the Black vote because it shows how easily constructed and manipulated you can be. Blacks are not and were never the culprits. Your anger should always be directed at those who got Prop 8 on the ballot.

    Judges have no right to legislate from the bench. No matter how you feel about the issue people voted and that's that, as is the tradition of our country. Until the next vote. That's where I'd put my efforts.

    Yes on Prop 8



  27. 27

    And in other news: Californication is flat ass broke. With the leftist lunacy rampant there it's so easy to see why.



  28. 28

    In a free society, we must realize that before we can distinguish between what is law and what is not, there must be an acceptance of some basic procedure by which law is made. In any legal system there must be some fundamental rule that points unambiguously to the source from which laws must come in order to be laws … this is what Kelsen called "the basic norm", and the good majority of legal scholars accept it today.

    In America, this fundamental rule is the constitution. So long as the constitution remains unamended a law MUST work with it, not against it or "tip-toe" around it, as we saw with prop 8. In this sense, I have been against the vote of prop 8. since before the majority voted "NO". Voting in minority rights is a gross violation of the Bill of Rights, or the Charter for Canadians. If the courts decide this vote is valid, then it will open up the flood gates to allow future minority rights to be stripped away, because the majority says so … technically, if this vote passes, then you guys could make slavery legal again.



  29. 29

    "oral arguments" with the subject matter THAT could be interesting. lol

    Seriously. What's the problem? We've had gay marriage in Canada for years and society hasn't fallen apart.

    Re: shardy – You don't know what the fuck you are talking about. Straight folks engage in three ways and have open relationships too. It depends on the person NOT their sexuality. Can you understand that, idiot?



  31. 31

    Would GAYS be happier if they were in PRISON where they could lick on each others private parts, undisturbed?



  32. 32

    Re: MarleyRai – YOU CANNOT BE THAT STUPID. WELL, MAYBE YOU ARE. THE MAJORITY ALWAYS DECIDES. THIS WAS AN AMENDMENT, NOT A LAW THAT A COURT CAN CHALLANGE. THE PEOPLE CHANGED THE RULES FOR THEIR STATE. AND IT WAS THE MAJORITY IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS ERA, YOU DUMB FUCK. YOU THINK THAT BLACKS WERE RUNNING THE SHOW THEN?? WHITES GRANTED THEM THEIR EQUALITY, AND THE LAST TIME I LOOKED, THERE WAS MORE OF THEM THAN BLACKS. GOD YOU ARE STUPID. BLACKS DO NOT HAVE A THING TODAY THAT WHITES DID NOT GRANT THEM. ALL THE WAY BACK TO SLAVERY. WHITES PUT AND END TO IT. WHITES GRANTED THE RIGHT TO BE CITIZENS. WHITES GRANTED THEM THE RIGHT TO OWN LAND. THE RIGHT TO VOTE. TO GO TO SCHOOL. YOU ARE A COMPLETE FUCKING IDIOT POSTING THIS CRAP. THE PEOPLE OF THAT STATE STEPPED UP AND SAID THAT WE DON'T WANT THIS IN OUR STATE. IT IS THEIR CHOICE. AND THEY MADE IT.

    I heard a rumor of a farmer who wanted to have a Gay Herd Of Hogs so he bought all males and gave them a nice place to live and eat? He is CoNFUSED and Very Unhappy now because he says CAN NOT understand why there have been no births of New Hogs since he went on this new program? What's the deal?



  34. 34

    PROP 8 IS A POINTLESS BILL… WE HAVE BIGGER ISSUES GOING ON RIGHT NOW…



  35. 35

    ESPECIALLY CALIFORNIA



  36. 36

    Re: bite me – I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU… I'M NOT AS PISSED ABOUT IT THOUGH BECAUSE I THINK THAT THE MAJORITY WILL RULE THE SAME ON THIS FOR A WHILE..



  37. 37

    It is absolutely crazy that in the year 2009 people are still debating this! Why can't everyone be free to love whomever they choose? There is so little love in this world why would anyone begrudge someone that?!? Get over it you bible thumping bigots!



  38. 38

    Hahaha…. silly homos.

    Yay!
