What Judgment?

Apparently the voice and will of the people of California was overridden today by four judges as the California Supreme Court overturned a homosexual marriage ban.

Today’s ruling by the California supreme court is another reminder why the most important job the next President of the United States will do is appoint justices to the Supreme Court of the United States. The presidential campaign this year may boil down to the lesser of the two liberals.

A ruling like this is perhaps a sign of worse things ahead as our society continues to sanction debauchery; in this case through appointed officials.

I wonder if those judges would classify the Apostle Paul’s statements as “hate speech?” I would not be surprised to see this issue brought before the courts in my lifetime.

1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,

SAN FRANCISCO ( — In a monumental victory for the gay rights movement, the California Supreme Court overturned a voter-approved ban on gay marriage Thursday in a ruling that would allow same-sex couples in the nation's biggest state to tie the knot.

Domestic partnerships are not a good enough substitute for marriage, the justices ruled 4-3 in an opinion written by Chief Justice Ron George.

Outside the courthouse, gay marriage supporters cried and cheered as news spread of the decision.

"Our state now recognizes that an individual's capacity to establish a loving and long-term committed relationship with another person and responsibly to care for and raise children does not depend upon the individual's sexual orientation," the court wrote.

The city of San Francisco, two dozen gay and lesbian couples and gay rights groups sued in March 2004 after the court halted San Francisco's monthlong same-sex wedding march.

"Today the California Supreme Court took a giant leap to ensure that everybody — not just in the state of California, but throughout the country — will have equal treatment under the law," said City Attorney Dennis Herrera, who argued the case for San Francisco.
