California lifts gay marriage ban


California's ruling is expected to have an impact on the nationwide debate

California's top court has ruled that a state law banning marriage between same-s3x couples is unconstitutional.

The state's Supreme Court said the "right to form a family relationship" applied to all Californians regardless of s3xuality.

The ban was approved by voters in 2000 but challenged by gay rights activists and the city of San Francisco.

The state legislature twice passed laws to legalise gay marriage, but Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed them.

He said California's court system should rule on the matter.

The seven-judge panel voted 4-3 in favour of the plaintiffs who argued that the 2000 law was discriminatory.

"Limiting the designation of marriage to a union 'between a man and a woman' is unconstitutional and must be stricken from the statute," California Chief Justice Ron George said in the written opinion.

'Historic'

The decision was met outside the courthouse by cheers from gay marriage supporters.

"I'm profoundly grateful. This is a historic day," said San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera, who argued the city's case to the court.

"Everybody being entitled to equal protection under the law probably carried the day," he said.

The ruling paves the way for California to become only the second US state, after Massachusetts, to allow same-s3x marriage.

The decision is expected to re-invigorate the f!ght for same-s3x marriage rights nationwide, say gay activists and legal experts.

California's Supreme Court has a history of landmark rulings that are later picked nationally.

The state currently offers same-s3x couples who register as domestic partners the same legal rights and responsibilities as married men and women.

Other states, such as Vermont and New Jersey, have similar civil union provisions.

Californian voters approved the ban against same-s3x marriages in a 2000 referendum. The law stated that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognised in California".

In early 2004, San Francisco became the first place in the US where gay couples were able to marry after the city's Mayor Gavin Newsom authorised same-s3x marriage licences, claiming the state legislation was discriminatory.

In August of that year, California's Supreme Court ruled the mayor had overstepped his authority and nullified the hundreds of marriages.

Gay rights group Equality California was joined by nearly two dozen gay couples and the city of San Francisco in bringing the case to the Supreme Court.

Does this decision effect your life at all? No. Then shut the fu*k up and move along.

Keep the rights moving. Good decision.

yeah i dont see why its still banned most places? i mean sh*t if a person is gonna be gay, they are gonna be gay, not being married wont stop them. Marriage just gives them the options to file joint taxes, adopt children etc.

the only thing i dont like about gay marriage is the children adoption, cause that kid is subject to scrutiny from the second he becomes their child. but whatever, the sooner someone scoops em up, the better for them im sure.

It would effect it cause what happens if a weirdo wants to marry a goat........


Or if i wanna marry my ipod for instance what makes it okay.........



Or even more realistic what happens if a dude wants to marry 5 pr0nstars particularly the ones from brazzers......



If you cater to the gay community who only makes up less than 8 percent of the population in this country if i beielive, what about the weirdos that are 10 and 20%?????


Thats the whole point...

A goat is not a consenting adult. The difference with same-s3x relationships and pedophilia or bestiality is that there is a consenting adult. With pedophelia and bestiality, there's no consent (and even if there is a consenting child, a child can't consent to relations w/an adult) which is what makes it wrong.

And there's no catering; it's called equal rights. When you exclude a particular group whose actions harm no one, you're in essence creating a second-class citizenry. The weirdos that make up 10-20%? Like who, criminals? With the exception of stupid drug laws, criminals are criminals because they're actions negatively affect someone else. That's not the case w/same-s3x marriage.

O, sure didn't. While I might not agree with polygyny, I actually don't see how it's government's business, what you and 5 of those Brazzers bi*ches agree to. So idk where the justice is, lol.
