    Will CA do the right thing and overturn Prop 8?

    It is getting to the final days. The decision on CA's Prop 8 is coming up this week. Will the courts stand up for civil rights as they always have. Will they fight for the 4% of Americans that have no voice? Will they allow the mob rule that can be an ugly thing?

    I do believe that the courts will do the right thing and overturn Prop 8!

    I really do believe that the courts will overturn this travesty of justice and freedom to all Americans.

    Proposition 8 amended the California State Constitution. It cannot be overturned as being unconstitutional. If the courts overturn, they are rewriting the constitution; that is beyond the competence of every court.

    The travesty would be for the court to overreach and rewrite the California constitution. That would be the end of the rule of law in California.

    Courts get to say what the law is. Legislatures and voters get to say what the law should be. That is the order of things.

    The Prop 8 amendment violates Article 1, Section 1, of California's Constitution, which enumerates "inalienable rights" to, among other things, liberty, happiness and privacy.

    Where is "marriage" in there?


    I support gay marriage but the fact is once something is done, it's done. The courts would be overstepping their boundaries to try to overturn a constitutional amendment on a constitutional basis.

    In 20 years or so we'll see pretty much every state legalize gay marriage, but for now things are the way they are.

    As much as I would like to see it overturned, I don't see how this can be accomplished. The vote, to my knowledge, was constitutional... unless of course activists can prove that some aspect of it wasn't, or find other such loopholes.

    I just hope that whatever happens, the people who are already married will not have their marriages annulled.

    We shall see.

    The right thing is to respect the will of the people....And its is pure BS to say that the homosexuals have no rights...
