    Default CA Appeals Court rules Prop. 8 Unconstitutional

    The only thread I found on this was closed, and was more about who the gays blamed for its passage. Anyway,

    A federal appeals court Tuesday struck down California's ban on same-sex marriage, clearing the way for the U.S. Supreme Court to rule on gay marriage as early as next year.

    The 2-1 decision by a panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found that Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that limited marriage to one man and one woman, violated the U.S. Constitution. The architects of Prop. 8 have vowed to appeal.

    The ruling was narrow and likely to be limited to California...

    Good, let the gays get married and enjoy all the misery of the institution! lol. Just be great to stop wasting $ on this. Let em' marry! Please. Who cares, worry about your own marriage. I understand it's not natural, but that's not going to stop two dudes in love from poking each other in the butt, so my Conservative friends, give it up. There's much bigger issues!

    Exactly, let it go people. The person you choose to love and commit too should not be anyone else's business but the two of you. I'm so tired of this debate.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    I said it before and I'll say it again.....more damage has been done to the sanctity of marriage by heterosexuals than allowing homosexuals to marry could ever do.

    you want to protect the institution of marriage......put a ban on divorces. of course you are probably going to see a big increase in "accidental" shootings, but that's the price you have to pay

    The government shouldn't have ever gotten into the business of defining a marriage. There should just be civil unions and nothing else as far as the government is concerned. The actual term "marriage" should be left to the churches, cults and other shadow groups out there.

    Yes, equal protection cannot be limited by theocratic ideas. Thank you supreme court for backing up the constitution. Why this took until 2012 is beyond me.

    I asked a gay friend of mine "what the hell are you guys doing? You have it made, sex without responsibility and no kids. You gay guys are living the dream!"

    He said "I know! I keep telling the Tribe that we don't want this, but do they listen to me, NOOO!"
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
