Gay marriage in CA: Judge decides his opinion is worth more than 7 million voters

Gay Marriage Amendment Struck Down

Reporting from San Francisco and Los Angeles — A federal judge declared California's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional Wednesday, saying that no legitimate state interest justified treating gay and lesbian couples differently from others and that "moral disapproval" was not enough to save the voter-passed Proposition 8.

I suppose the right of a community to have standards isn't their business? I suppose the right of a community to uphold the value and respect for an institution that has fostered the family and continuation of the human race for thousands of years isn't important?

Nowhere in the constitution does it proscribe any indication of rights based on the expression of sexual orientation. The constitution rightly was quiet on the issue as that is not an issue like race or gender, but an issue of standards. Most people, while not necessarily supporting the expression of homosexuality, believe that is an issue between individuals and "their creator". However, the line is drawn for most people about what type of relationships we will officially bless. The constitution left such a standard to the states. However, the federal judge decided today that he alone can pull a new right out of the constitution to cover what he believes is an acceptable practice.

As they say, elections have consequences. Think about activist judges who ignore the will of the people when you vote this in November and vote accordingly.
