California to consider Prop. 8 challenges

By Michael J.W. Stickings

From the S.F. Chronicle:

The California Supreme Court has asked state Attorney General Jerry Brown to reply by Monday to lawsuits challenging the voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage -- a sign that the justices are taking the cases seriously and will not dispose of them quickly.

A good sign indeed. As Governor Schwarzenegger himself put it this past Sunday, referring to the ban on same-sex marriage enacted with Proposition 8, "it's unfortunate, obviously, but it's not the end. I think that we will again maybe undo that, if the court is willing to do that, and then move forward from there and again lead in that area."

And the highest court in the state may very well be "willing to do that."

  • is this government not made up of the people? did the people not vote TWICE to define marriage as between a man and a woman? how can the governor, who was voted by the people, stand up and say the courts need to overturn the wishes of the people?
