Boo! Another Delay In Prop 8 Decision!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

Earlier this month, we learned that California's Supreme Court was going to make a decision on "whether to weigh in on the federal Proposition 8 appeal."

It looked like support for a Prop 8 repeal in California was a strong possibility, but now there have been more delays! Boo!

Yesterday, California's Supreme Court announced that it would listen to arguments regarding "whether marriage-equality opponents have standing to defend Proposition 8 in court when state officials refused to do so," a move that will delay resolution of the case.

Here's what American Foundation for Equal Rights board president Chad Griffin had to say about the new Prop 8 delay:

"More than six months ago, the federal district court declared unequivocally that Prop. 8 is unconstitutional and that it causes grave harm to gay and lesbian couples and their families each day that it is in effect. We look forward to assisting the California Supreme Court to reach an answer to the question before them as soon as possible so that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals can affirm the district court's ruling and end the state-sanctioned discrimination of Prop. 8. We are hopeful that the California Supreme Court will also consider further expediting this matter so that it could be argued before the summer."

"The American Foundation for Equal Rights is committed to achieving the freedom to marry for all Americans. We look forward to taking this case to the U.S. Supreme Court, which 14 times before has declared that marriage is a fundamental right for every American."

Well said, Chad! Let's get this process moving ASAP!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.

    Your site is really getting boring Perez.

    the Voters of Californian say no to gay marriage but one pole smoking homo judge says yes. Seems fair to me.

    Perez it amazes me that a dick bag such as yourself is famous simply for treating people like shit.

    The people already spoke on this. They said, no. Quit trying to force this crap on us.

    I have no issues with equal rights of GLTB etc.. but I think this site isn't a forum for it perez. I really think you should make a spin off like your coco perez and teddy etc for all the posts on this. I feel like you posting all of this just breeds more hate.. Call it Politically Perez or something… I think your readers would appreciate it.

    we voted and YOU lost…

    get the fuck over it.

    you don't have a vote on a Proposition and then get all mad when you lose. what was the point of voting if the gays were going to invalidate it.

    If a liberal state like CA votes it down, there must be a reason! The majority of people are not in favor of it…sorry! Push for Civil Unions and you might actually get somewhere!

    Re: MsJules – That's ridiculous. His site is about news and stuff and that's what this is. If you don't like it, leave? If you find the story annoying, skip over it. Everyone is so whiney these days.

    gays dont deserve rights. neither do woman.

    Just because the majority of a population votes for something doesn't mean its right. That logic holds absolutely no ground. If we held a vote on women's rights to vote or own property 100 years ago, what do you think the result would be? Doesn't make it right. You can't vote on social issues that impact the civil rights of an oppressed minority population.

    Re: anonymous_000 – Don't worry about 'those' comments. They are from folks who know nothing original and yet their money is just as green. Read here long enough and you can almost automatically filter 'them' out.
