California Supreme Court Set To Decide On Prop 8

Posted by | May 25, 2009 18:43 | Filed under: Top Stories

In November, voters in California passed Proposition 8, banning same-sex marriage.  Tuesday, the Supreme Court of that state decides whether revoking the right of gays to marry is constitutional,  and also rules on what happens to those who got married there when it was legal. 18,000 same-sex couples married between the time their unions were legalized in June and the November vote.

…opponents of same-sex marriage argue that it is illogical to continue to recognize marriages that can no longer be legally performed here.


Andrew P. Pugno, the general counsel for, the leading group behind Proposition 8, said that it was meant to be “a blanket unqualified statement that applies to all marriages.” Allowing some same-sex marriages to stand, he said, would “create two classes of gay couples” in the state.

Ironic that Pugno is concerned about creating “two classes of gay couples”, but not two classes of couples, period.
