    Facts, I need them.

    If you can read the ruling, and cite evidence that it's an "activist" ruling then post it. If you can't prove it(which you can't) then you should have a problem with this judges ruling.
    No an activist judge rules on personal and political beliefs

    What I have been hearing(and I have been waiting for this decision all day...) is that most likely it will be held, as allowing marriages to go forward would create legal and ethical problems until a final verdict is reached in the last appeal. No one knows for sure yet, but I would bet on a stay.

    deal with the consequences of your VICTORY

    november nears
    Um, in case you didn't notice, you lost.

    You've lost in other cases as well.

    You've lost in other countries.

    You've lost support as well (each time this is on the ballot, it loses by less and less -- the public opinion is moving away from you, not toward you)

    Every single indicator -- every single one -- points into the direction away from where you believe it is heading.

    You have lost today, and you will lose in the future. Maybe not immediately, but it is inevitable.

    History always shows a progression toward more freedom, not less.

    So laugh while you can, monkey boy. We all know who will have the last laugh.

    I am very uncomfortable with a Justice prejudging or appearing to prejudge a case, whether or not I agree with what they say.

    So a gay judge, overturns a gay marriage ban....

    Great, so when does the appeal get filed and make this ruling pointless again?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I agree with the court's decision, and applaud it. I said from the start of the original debate that this is not an issue for majority rule, it is for the courts to decide. Huge amounts of money don't always guarantee a win for your side of any issue.
    The Mom and Dad part, never heard about that, not that it matters. I still think that the people of California can think for themselves, no matter who donates tons of money...

    Read up: A state constitutional amendment can't violate the Federal Constitution. Period. 6-3. And that 6 included Kennedy.
