    I predicted in the beginning that this gay judge will overturn prop 8 as well as the radical 9th circuit......It will then go to the SCOTUS where they will uphold prop 8 by a 5 to 4 decision with justice Kennedy writing the opinion......

    Book it !!!!!

It's legislating from the bench and it will be a defeat for democracy and freedom if prop 8 gets overturned. People can support gay marriage, but what is going on in the court is truly shameful.
    You clearly have as much understanding of the Constitution as the kitten in your avatar.

    You didn't address a single argument made about the purpose of the Constitution.

    It doesn't say, "Majority Wins!"

    Were that the case, it wouldn't have been NEARLY as long as it is.

    So, you believe that if Californians voted to send all Asians out of the state, then it should be upheld because the people said so?

    I'd be willing to bet a LOT of marriage are centered around oral sex. At least all the ones that end up in divorce.

    You realize that Kennedy, while a moderate, has frequently come out on the side of gays. He wrote the opinions overturning sodomy laws in Texas and overturning Colorado's discriminatory Amendment 2. The only case where he didn't was uphold the Boy Scouts right to not hire gays (which, by the way, I agree with because they are a private organization).

    So, you may be putting your eggs in a flimsy basket. Then again, so might the attorneys who took up this case in the first place.

    It's clearly getting overturned in round 1 - even if it weren't unconstitutional on its merits, when the defending attorney uses, "It just is", "I don't need to know", and "I don't need evidence", you're probably not going to get very far.

    divorce comes from someone opening up their mouth too many times

    And the Sodomy law should have been overturned....It was bad law....What people do in the privacy of their bedroom is no ones business but their own be they straight or gay....This my left wing friend is a completely different matter as you will find out............

    His being gay isn't why he's going to overturn Prop 8. Funny how you fixate on that.

    Unfortunately, I really wish I could say you were wrong, but I think this is the likely scenario. SCOTUS has a 5-4 conservative slant right now. Swing votes are possible, but it's a tough one. If Prop 8's supporters are as inept in the SCOTUS trial as they were in this one, there's a better chance, but if I were betting my life savings it would be on the bible thumpers.

    Honestly, what's unconstitutional about defining marriage? They just want to enforce socially liberal policies and a law suite was plan B. If it was illegal they should have had it looked at before the election. The hypocrisy with wanting to turn over Prop 8 is truly astronomical.
