Judge strikes California's ban on same-sex marriage, Proposition 8

Judge strikes California's ban on same-sex marriage, Proposition 8

Yay, yay, yay!!!! The judge said that "California's Proposition 8 'fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license.'"

I love it when judges are fair in reading the Constitution.

May I submit to the Court:

US Constitution: Amendment Fourteen
The "Equal Protection Clause"
1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. (emphasis mine)
It's nice to see that more people are starting to view people who are homosexual as PEOPLE.

    KCM: As I've been saying since the judge over turned it, the country is going to hell in a handbasket. I don't know about the rest of you, but I think the Second Coming is pretty close.

    TWM: you know... as a "somewhat older" person.. no, I don't the the second coming is coming soon... look at history.. things have been MUCH worse in our own country than it is now.. and for YEARS, everytime things get freaky and strange in our country people are sure Christ's time is close... my parents were sure the end was near in the early 60's with the Cuban missle crisis.. we're still here... just vote the morons out, be the best person you can be and let God take care of the when and where.. REALLY... life is pretty darned sweet!

    KM: This is one topic that will really get me riled... When we really have to be worried is when, as the Book of Mormon says, the majority of the people choose evil. But judges having such a ridiculous power of judicial review is not helping. The lines between right and wrong and the constitutional powers of all branches of governement have been blurred.

    AW: Yes they have kenny. I believe that it is going to get a whole lot worse...we think it is bad now? Can we imagine what its going to be like fifteen years from now....or ten years?

    TM: hmmm.....you guys are saying the same thing the Democrats said when Reagan and Bush were President....remember, we live in a Democracy...that means when we lose an election we don't cry "end of the world"...the people will come around after they suffer a little bit no matter who is in charge. And by the way, people of Faith don't worry or panic over the Second Coming...bring it on.
