We do live in a Tyranny afterall... Where the spoken voice of the public with their marjority votes, means nothing.
Like it was going to turn out any other way though.

I dont care about the issue, but why bother anymore. The game is rigged.

neither of these two sluts    

I am gay and do not believe in Gay Marriage for the simple fact that I dont need anyones permission to be with who I choose...My partner and I have been together 25 years and we have taken care of all things we need to take care of...we made an iron clad will...I have power of attorney over his health as he does mine and no one is allowed to interfere with our wishes. I left my family out of my will on purpose as so did he. And we feel we are already partnered and will be for life....may i say our life insurance will also benefit each other..I dont need some idiot nation to tell me how and wom to love..that is giving them so much power over our lives>

This is GREAT NEWS! Hopefully this will be LAW throughout the ENTIRE US!

Not for nothin' but....the straights havent done that great of a job with marriage - give it to us gays, we'll fix it for you! The straight world has a 50% divorce ratio....not so good if you ask me!

Laws don't mean **** in this pathetic country. It is run by a few rich a-holes.

Homosexuals have mental problems. Look what happen to Lindsay Lohan when she turned lesbian.

The ruling is very undemocratic! Prop 8 was passed by MAJORITY of the voters and if one person's decision can prevail most of the people's decision, we are talking about dictatorship here! No matter if you like Prop 8 or not, it was passed by a democratic process and we have to respect democracy!

Rewarding homos for their deviant lifestyle is not something I think America is all about. It says a lot about our judicial system when one person can overrule the will of millions. Not what I'd consider a Democracy.

Welcome to the new America which is ruled by the will of the Government and not the will of the people!

Shanna Moakler = the worst mother in the world. Maybe next you should campaign to get equal rights for pigs so you could be treated equally.
Nice to see you could get out of bed long enough to tweet about this, or did you...
Do you even know where your kids are?

Great, now that we got that out of the way. I want to be able to marry boys. Lifetime member of NAMBLA and we have rights too. I have the right to love whomever I want, and I love boys. I also love animals and may want to marry later on down the road, but first i must fight for my right to bang a boy!

Wow, why even vote then?

Good for the Judge. It doesn't matter that 52 percent of the bigots in California voted for this. The constitution superceeds over states rights and this clearly violated the 14th amendment's equal protection clause. I would really hate to see what thos country would look like with the religious zealots making all the rules. I'd imagine it would look much like the middle east.
