Federal Judge Vaughn Walker, himself a gay man, has ruled that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. Propostion 8 was a ballot measure sponsored by a group called Protect Marriage and placed before the voters of California. The petition simply states: "Marriage shall be defined by the constitution of the state of California as between a man and a woman."
52% of the voters of California, the nation's largest state, and one of the country's more politically and socially liberal states, agreed with Proposition 8 and rejected the idea that a homosexual union is identical to and should be afforded the same rights, benefits, and status as a heterosexual marriage. Proponents of Prop 8 support the traditional view of marriage as it has been understood for centuries by multiple cultures, faiths, governments, and social groups. The verdict is expected to be appealed.
A gay judge disagreed with the majority of the voters - again. Indeed, wherever so-called "gay marriage" has been put before the people, the people have rejected it. In fact, 100% of gay rights victories have come from the courts or from state and municipal legislatures, not from voters.
The crumbling of the Judeo-Christian era and its flagship nation - the United states of America - continues apace.
