In case you are wondering what those lawsuits are.. what they are arguing, what they are trying to do…
1. Does Proposition 8 make such a far-reaching change to California's Constitution that it amounts to a constitutional revision, which requires a two- thirds vote of the Legislature to be placed on the ballot?
2. Does Prop. 8 violate the constitutional separation of powers by restricting judges' authority to protect the rights of same-sex couples?
3. If constitutional, does Prop. 8 invalidate the 18,000 same-sex marriages that took place in California between June 16, when the court's ruling legalizing gay and lesbian unions took effect, and the election?
In celebration of the Justices decision and in celebration that the time line is a few months and not a few years, a group of about 30 people gathered last night at City Hall.
Again the spirit was of hope, of a diverse community coming together, straight, gay, black white, same struggle same fight… protect love, gay or straight, protect love, repeal eight!
