Prop 8 overturned

Who'da thunk it? A judge ruled that gay men an women can get married after all, much to the outrage of those who wish to see their fellow citizens treated as untermenschen. Now, if we can just get government out of the business of regulating marriage altogether, we can see societal evolution continue to evolve. If opponents had any substantial argument other than a belief in an invisible and unprovable guy in the sky, and the requisite doxology that everyone else adhere to their myth....I would be all ears. But alas...'tis not to be.

[Judge] Walker, however, found that the gay marriage ban violates the Constitution's due process and equal protection clauses while failing "to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license."

"Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples," the judge wrote in his 136-page ruling.
