Activist Judges Overrule California Voters On Marriage

California Now Becomes The Second State
To Legalize Same Sex Marriage

The California Supreme Court today overturned a California law defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman.

the 4-3 ruling overturns a marriage law passed by 61% of California voters in March 2000.

"This decision is especially brazen given that 61% of voters passed such a marriage law precisely to protect marriage in 2000."

"Perhaps we should drop all pretense and change the preamble from 'We the People' to 'We the Judges.'"Proponents of a constitutional amendment to protect marriage are planning on filing a stay on the court ruling. Defenders of traditional marriage in California have gathered 1.1 million signatures in hopes of landing the amendment on the ballot this November.
