    To cheers, same-sex marriages resume in California [W:381]

    To cheers, same-sex marriages resume in California - latimes.com


    "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!

    This has been blowing up on my FB account. Lots of friends of mine are now in a much better legal position vis-a-vis their relationships than they were a few days ago. Good on them. On the other hand, now I'm probably going to have to do some wedding present shopping, and that just sucks.

    Yes, I'm very pleased to see that Prop 8 is finally dead, since it only passed in the first place because of scare tactics and outright lies told by the proponents during the election.

    I'm happy that finally in California homosexual couples who wish to marry will be treated equally.

    When I heard this I thought WOW.....we were told it would be a month at the earliest. I'm glad that the Court decided that even more than a couple days is too long to wait to let H8 and discrimination continue.

    Absolutely....the Mormon church should be ashamed of themselves for the lies and deceit that they propagandized during the prop H8 campaign. Hopefully they recognized that lying in the name of God is still lying...but I doubt it.

    Yeah. It's awful how having a constitution gets in the way of tyrannical populist movements to codify injustice in our legal system. That's probably why the founding fathers didn't want to have a constitution in the first place. No, wait a second...

    yeah, but the voice of the people is supreme with the Libbos...until they don't like the voice of the people.

    I'm all for gays getting married, but the way the Libbos went about this is really ****ty.

    Right. Much like how conservatives just accept gun control laws and don't attempt to fight them via the court system.
