    "Same-sex marriages in California resumed Friday when a federal appeals court lifted a hold on a 2010 injunction, sparking jubilation among gays and cries of lawlessness from the supporters of Proposition 8.


    In a surprise action, a federal appeals court cleared the way, bypassing a normal waiting period and lifting a hold on a trial judge’s order that declared Proposition 8 unconstitutional."



    Prop H8 is dead!!!! Let Freedom ring!


    Congrats to California, have fun being able to board that sinking ship just like the rest of us.

    i didn't, but i have looked at it before, those laws are statutory laws,, and those laws are subordinate to constitutional law.

    civil right laws, which pertain to government action of discrimination on there part are constitutional, becuase the constitution says the government cannot discriminate.

    however no constitutional law, prohibits people or business from discrimination, therefore any federal statues applying to people or private business are unconstitutional, becuase they have no power of constructional law to back it up.

    Again, I've linked the case for you. Sorry. It was ruled it did not violate the Constitution.

    sorry...Statutory law or statute law is written law (as opposed to oral or customary law) set down by a legislature (as opposed to regulatory law promulgated by the executive or common law of the judiciary) or by a legislator (in the case of an absolute monarchy). Statutes may originate with national, state legislatures or local municipalities. Statutory laws are subordinate to the higher constitutional laws of the land.

    Keep repeating it, but the court still ruled it did not violate the Constitution. It is what it is. And in context of the history, we should all be fine with it.

    no it proves the point that over a few thousands of years of civilized history you can only find two examples of gay marriage, and the two examples you give were lunatic maniacs. How does that make anyone want to jump on board as far as historical precedence goes

    Historical precedence holds that women had very little rights in marriage, particularly as compared to her husband. Relying on historical precedence as a foundation for how we should view marriage will not work today and is a failed argument.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
