I’ll not linger on the actual merits of the case - at least as it pertains to the status of whether or not gays and lesbians should be allowed to marry.
But it does sadden me to see how one lone, rogue judge clad in black robes can summarily dismiss the will of over 7,000,000 California voters who chose to revise and amend their state’s constitution with a swing of a gavel.
The appeal has little hope of surviving in the ultra-liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals… and from there, I cannot say with certainty that the SCOTUS would pick it up for review.
The risk is that the Ninth Circuit Court would uphold Judge Walker’s decision and thereby preempt any states in their jurisdiction that define marriage as between only man and woman.
If this ruling stands, sure this nation is not very far dealing a death-stroke to the already ailing institute of marriage (beset by cheap and easy divorce among other things)… and perhaps equally troubling, a further erosion of the 10th amendment which preserves states’ rights, as well as the PEOPLE’s rights to form their own laws in their own states.
