Back in 2008, the judicial activists on the California Supreme Court overruled the will of the voters by overturning Prop 22, which said that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid and recognized in California.”
So, the voters of California once again voted on the issue via Prop 8. and once again, the people of California decided that marriage is only valid between a man and a woman.
Then unsurprisingly, the pro-gay marriage crowd in California, which is completely overrun with loud, obnoxious, virulently anti-Christian punks in the midst of a year long temper tantrum, insisted the court once again overturn the will of the people.
Apparently, thwarting the rule-of-law twice was a bit much even for the California Supreme Court, which declined to overturn Prop 8 by 6-to-1.
The next step for the Perez Hilton crowd will be another vote in 2010. Whether they will win or not is hard to say for sure. Black voters, who turned out in droves to support Obama, didn’t go their way last time. However, without Obama on the ballot, black voters won’t turn out in similar numbers. However, the wind will probably be to the back of Republicans in 2010 instead of Democrats and on the whole, the country seems to be leaning back towards the socially conservative side these days.
That’s why it wouldn’t surprise me a bit to see gay marriage lose by an even bigger margin in 2010 than it did in 2008, although that’s certainly far from a given. There will also be more court challenges and if supporters of gay marriage seem unlikely to win at the ballot box in the foreseeable future, their allies in the California Supreme Court may simply say, “Damn appearances,” and force gay marriage on the state.
