The Decision

Prop8 upheld, but the 18,000 stay married.

More will follow.

Well, you are still married, IT. But I have even less respect for Christians, especially, now. And some wonder why I refuse to identify myself that way.

I'm disgusted and sad..oh..and MAD.

Glad you are still married IT but sad for those who wish to marry. Back to the trenches to get Prop 8 repealed.

A sitting on the fence decision. Careful not to appear to be too much to either side ;=)

But it can never stand.

The judges should be ashamed of themselves, really.

Next round: the voters.

In toto - what a missed occasion!

Future generations will look at this descision and deplore that it didn't do the right thing: advance the cause of Justice in the World for all people by doing right to some.

Oh good. Just what we needed, another class of homosexual, the legally married and STATE VALIDATED vs the standard unholy promiscuous tramps...I guess some of us will just need to keep ¨fasting¨ (not to be confused with discounts on a FULL SHARE OF TAXES)...makes me think of the possible opportunities for second-class participation at all levels of Episcopal Churchlife that are on the Anaheim agenda...more, equal the sequel?

This decision is irrational and BEYOND NUTS!

IT, I am so incredibly relieved for you - I do tend to think first of those I know.

But how incredibly wrong, and unfair for those couples yet to meet, or still walking the path to the loving commitment of marriage.

Oh, IT, thank God you took advantage of the window of opportunity.

California has disgraced itself and lost its title to the "progressive capital of the country". I am glad IT and BP are still legally married. They are married regardless, but the legal part might help. Meanwhile, this is only a loss of a battle; we are making progress on the war and will continue to do that.

I received this today from the "Courage Campaign" (the more Out,Loud & Proud of the Anti-H8 groups):

Last week, we asked our members to vote on which year -- 2010 or 2012 -- the Courage Campaign should support going back to the ballot to restore marriage equality. Your collective response was overwhelming -- 82.5% support a 2010 ballot measure. As a result, the Courage Campaign is announcing today its strong support for a 2010 initiative, while respecting that partner organizations are still discussing and deliberating this very important question.

(IMO, I think other SSM groups in CA will follow)

So, there you have it: in a year and half, if we all ***WORK HARD*** we can win marriage back to STAY.

Now, what are we gonna do about it?

JCF, off to look self in mirror...

[NB to IT: we ALL want you and BP to share at least a MOMENT of relief. You two have earned it! {{{hugs}}}]
