    It has been now.

'Rule' being the key word, there. all i can say on that is that now that we have decided to grant Judges the right to dictate our marriages; i can't wait to laugh my head off when a fundamentalist Christian judge invalidates marriage off of no-fault divorce. hooray for kings!

    as for those who think this is going to be a victory - you don't win in American politics by giving the vast majority of it's citizens the middle finger. all you do is provoke backlash. the homosexul-marriage advocacy community should have tried to convince the American citizenry of the rightness of their cause, like the Civil Rights movement whom they claim kinship to but whose lessons they ignore.
    No, if the majority is oppressing the minority, it is not up to the minority to "convince" the majority that their oppression is wrong. That's what we have courts for. And this court ruled in favor of gay marriage.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    wrong. until the judge issued his ruling today, it was a state issue. now it's been declared in violation of the Federal Constitution making it a Federal issue.



    I would like to point out as well that i find hilarious how many of the same people cheered the judge striking down DOMA as are cheering this decision.

    given that the judge in striking down DOMA was arguing that marriage is a state matter and the federal government had no right to interfere..... and the judge who struck down Prop 8 did so arguing that the states did not have authority over marriage, but that the Federal government does.

    again. activist judging is when you don't really care what the rule of law is, so long as the result is your ideological preference.
