CA Supreme Court Strikes Down Anti-Gay Marriage Laws


California Court Affirms Right to Gay Marriage

The court’s 4-to-3 decision, striking down two state laws that had limited marriages to unions between a man and a woman, will make California only the second state, after Massachusetts, to allow same-sex marriages. The decision, which becomes effective in 30 days, is certain to be an issue in the presidential campaign.

“In view of the substance and significance of the fundamental constitutional right to form a family relationship,” Chief Justice Ronald M. George wrote of marriage for the majority, “the California Constitution properly must be interpreted to guarantee this basic civil right to all Californians, whether gay or heterosexual, and to same-sex couples as well as to opposite-sex couples.”

I'm very happy to hear this news. :) I've been disappointed that CA wasn't allowing gay marriage. We're supposed to be very liberal, open minded, forward thinking, etc. This has been long overdue!

In fact, it was 4 years ago that Mayor Gavin Newsom instigated civil disobedience and started performing marriages in San Francisco that eventually led us to today. It also precipitated some events within my family that led to me making the decision to no longer speak to my parents.

So, this is a win-win in my opinion.
