No stay on marriage equality in California

Timothy Kincaid

July 15th, 2013

The latest emergency injunction requested by the defendants of Proposition 8 has been rejected. However, the California Supreme Court (a better bunch than I) have decided to at least pretend to give due consideration to the latest line of wackadoodle delusion (that the Governor lacks the authority to refuse to enforce the unconstitutional amendment – or some such drivel).

The California Supreme Court refused Monday to order the state to immediately stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

However, the court still plans to consider whether the governor and attorney general correctly instructed county clerks that a voter-approved ban on gay marriages had become legally invalid statewide.

Without comment, the court denied a request made Friday by backers of the ban for an emergency order that would have required the state to keep enforcing Proposition 8 while they pursue a last-ditch legal effort to preserve it.

And, as per usual, the loons see victory in their defeat. They are joyously looking forward to arguing their case. They would also see it a grand victory if, while being booted down the stairs, no one threw tomatoes.

It never ceases to amaze me. A group of people that is least likely to be influenced by marriage equality is so darned desperate to prevent another group from receiving the benefits of marriage.

“How dare you take away my right to control and influence every aspect of your personal lives!?”
