California's Gay Marriage Case: Supreme Court Or Bust!!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspiration

We're almost there!!

In February, the Ninth Circuit ruled that Californian Prop 8 was unconstitutional. So supporters of the gay-marriage-banning bill sought to have a larger panel of judges rehear their arguments.

But it's official. They're just not havin' it. The Ninth Circuit has declined to rehear arguments over the statewide ban on gay marriage.

That being said, the case is gearing up for it's trip to the Supreme Court, where the final gavel could bang equality once and for all!!!

If the Court decides the case is worth hearing, a decision will come by June 2013. If not, gay marriage could once again be legal for the golden state as early as October!!!

And with polls showing 47% of Americans supporting gay marriage versus 43% who oppose it, we're feeling EXTRA optimistic on this one!!

LOVE AND EQUALITY WILL RULE SUPREME!!! Ha! ;)

    why don't the gay right supporter leave the decision of the California voters stand, twice the voters have said "this is a male to female marriage state"

    Re: Antonio – A civil rights issue should never be put to a vote. Either you are for discrimination or you are not. If you don't support gay marriage, then don't marry a gay person - otherwise, it does not affect you.

    Re: Antonio – In the case of Loving v. Virginia in 1967, the Supreme Court ruled that marriage is a fundamental civil right for all Americans. As a ruling by the Supreme Court, our government must abide by it. Thus, it should not be put up to a vote. At the time of the Loving case in which the SC ruled that banning interracial marriage was unconstitutional, 74% of Americans opposed interracial marriage, and I would hope that no one in this day and age would regret that decision.

    Re: rosebud99 – You are an idiot! "otherwise it doesn't affect you?" Yes it affects everyone. This isn't a civil rights issue. Gays choose to live that lifestyle,

    Re: dryan1971 – I can not believe you said that.

    Re: Antonio – Because this country has, multiple times, deemed that the rights of certain individuals in this country cannot be decided by the masses. If the civil rights movement had been left to a public vote we may still be segregated.

    Re: bjh2259 – Dryan1971 is kind of the 'pet bigot' on this site. Don't pay them any attention. They're mostly around for a laugh or two. Many people, including myself, believe they are just trolling to prove a point. It's hard for me to believe anyone walking around in this day and age would say, much less believe some of the things they have written on this site.
