Prop 8 Again

The morons on the Supreme Court of California are going to hear the Prop 8 issue. Should have a ruling by summer.

Supremes to review ‘gay’ lawsuits against Prop. 8
California court agrees to evaluate complaints against ban on same-sex ‘marriage’

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California Supreme Court decided today that it will review lawsuits contesting legality of Proposition 8, the state’s same-sex marriage ban – despite that 52 percent of voters passed the amendment to the state constitution.

According to court documents, the issues to be argued include the following:

1. Is Proposition 8 invalid because it constitutes a revision of, rather than an amendment to, the California Constitution?

2. Does Proposition 8 violate the separation of powers doctrine under the California Constitution?

3. If Proposition 8 is not unconstitutional, what is its effect, if any, on the marriages of same-sex couples performed before the adoption of Proposition 8?

The court ordered the State of California, Attorney General Jerry Brown, the state registrar of vital statistics and the deputy director of health information and strategic planning of the California Department of Public Health to “show cause before this court … why the relief sought by petitioners should not be granted” on or before Dec. 19.
