    I voted no.

    I hope I'm wrong... I think the decision is due in 10 minutes.

    Except when the people and the legislature enact something that runs counter to the Constitution.

    Well it looks like another victory for anti gay marriage forces in California.

    An amendment to the constitution cannot violate the constitution.

    Except where it violates prior points of the constitution without overturning them.

    Like...?

    Amendments, by their nature, change existing portions of the constitution.
    Thus, an amendment cannot be unconstitutional.

    Except where they contradict one another.

    Anti-gay forces... like the people of CA who voted for the amendment...?

    There was a topic on this board that described how a significant portion of the support for this amendment came from hispanics and blacks, who were bought to the polls by the "get out the vote" Obama support machine.

    Go figure.

    The part you're not getting is that they cannot contradict each other. The amendment, being an amendment, takes precedence, as it, by its nature, changes the existing parts of the Constitution.

    If you disagree -- please cite an example where this 'contradiction' might exist.
