Prop 8 Overturned!

August 4, 2010

Ding dong, the hitch is dead! Now everyone in Cali can get hitched!

Nothing so efficient as a newspaper article, so let's quote it:

A federal judge today struck down Proposition 8, the voter-passed November 2008 initiative that defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker found that the ban on same-sex marriage violated the constitutional due process and equal protection rights of a pair of couples - one lesbian and one gay - who sued.

The judge ordered an injunction against enforcement of Prop. 8 but issued a temporary stay until he decides whether to suspend his ruling while it is being appealed. The stay means that same-sex couples are still prohibited from marrying.

Please note that the forces of evil are already filing an appeal. The battle won't be won until it reaches the Supreme Court. Gird yer loins.
