In a surprise move, state Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown asked the California Supreme Court on Friday to invalidate Proposition 8. He said the November ballot measure that banned gay marriage "deprives people of the right to marry, an aspect of liberty that the Supreme Court has concluded is guaranteed by the California Constitution."Not surprisingly, the Yes-on-H8 side is actively arguing to void my marriage:
It is the attorney general's duty to defend the state's laws, and after gay rights activists filed legal challenges to Proposition 8, which amended the Constitution to ban same-sex marriage, Brown said he planned to defend the proposition as enacted by the people of California.
But after studying the matter, Brown concluded that "Proposition 8 must be invalidated because the amendment process cannot be used to extinguish fundamental constitutional rights without compelling justification."
Yes on 8 campaign filed a brief arguing that because the new law holds that only marriages between a man and a woman are recognized or valid in California, the state can no longer recognize the existing same-sex unions. The document reveals for the first time that opponents of same-sex marriage will fight in court to undo those unions that already exist.This people want to walk into my home and rip the ring off my finger and tear up my license. THey want to forcibly divorce me with the power of the state.. Let's also remember that they Yes-on-H8 people told us they didn't want to hurt us, this wasn't personal, they weren't going to attack those of us lucky enough to marry---more lies. THIS is PERSONAL. THIS is VIOLENT. THIS is HATE.
