Same-Sex Marriages Remain Legal In CA, Despite Best Efforts Of Those Who Fight Against Love!

lesbian wedding abc 7 news

We have great news for everyone with the capacity to love!

Today the California Supreme Court put what we HOPE is the final nail in Proposition 8's coffin!

Judges just rejected arguments from those seeking to halt same-sex marriages, which have been allowable in the state since the U.S. Supreme Court made its historic decision a few months back.

It's hard for us to fathom how anyone could oppose the right of ordinary folks to marry whomever they love, but those hate-spreading groups continue to exist!!

We would love to view this as a deathblow to the bigots and ill-informed, but San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera admits the haters may never back down!

SCOTUS Hears Oral Arguments About Prop 8 & Marriage Equality! Listen IN FULL Here!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

It's an exciting time in humanity's history people!

Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the official federal constitutional challenge to California's Proposition 8.

In case you missed ANY part of the explosive discussion, don't fret! Take a good, long listen (above)!

If you are somehow unaware of Prop 8 or the controversy that surrounds it, let us briefly inform you…

Prop 8 is a state constitutional amendement that received a majority of Californian votes in November 2008. The proposition declares "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Thus, any same sex marriages that had previously been recognized in the eyes of the law were no longer considered so, and same sex couples were (again) unable to legally get married.

Thankfully, this GROSS violation of equal rights is FINALLY being addressed, and on a nation-wide platform!

And whatever the Supreme Court decides, it's going to be MONUMENTAL.

Here's to a more tolerant, enlightened future society!

Clint Eastwood & President Obama Bury The Hatchet In Support Of Same-Sex Marriage!

clint-eastwood-gay-marriage-barack-obama

You tell 'em, Dirty Harry!

Clint Eastwood signed a letter recently urging the US Supreme Court to overturn the seemingly unconstitutional ban on gay marriage in California.

The 86-year-old is a proud conservative Libertarian and outspoken critic of President Obama. If you don't believe us, just ask the empty chair he flirted with at the Republican party's convention last year.

But that didn't stop him from siding with the Prez when it mattered most!
