Skip to comments.Prop 8: Gay marriages can resume in California, court rules
Posted on 06/28/2013 3:52:41 PM PDT by LonelyCon
The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday cleared the way for gay marriages to resume in California.
The court lifted its stay on an injunction which ordered state officials to stop enforcing Proposition 8. With the court's action, counties can now begin issuing same-sex marriage licenses.
A spokesman for the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals had originally said it would takes the court at least 25 days to act after a Supreme Court ruling. Immediately afterward, Gov. Jerry Brown ordered his public health agency to advise the state's counties to "begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in California as soon as the 9th Circuit confirms the stay is lifted."

Democrats: making the world safe for sodomy.
Makes no sense. Their decision was vacated, and yet they get tot make the final decision?
Gay “marriage” can pretend to continue, but that will not force decent people to pretend it means anything.
First same-sex marriage happens at 4:15pm in SF following lift of the stay of the injunction on Prop8. @KCBSNews --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lord, have mercy on us!
This decision was like George Zimmerman being put on trial, but denied any legal defense at all.
Aside from the obvious moral degradation, the government has just nullified the will of the people.
We no longer have a say. Our lives are ruled by a star chamber
It won’t matter still to me. I still will show my utter disgust in front of these faggots.
Because their decision was vacated, the stay pending appeal which they had ordered has to be dissolved as well. The only question was whether they were going to wait for the "mandate" (the Supreme Court's formal order to them to vacate their decision, which will come down in about 25 days), or act on their own.
The sovereign people of CA declared via their constitution, as is their right, that marriage = man + wife.
The decision of a local faggot federal judge, Vaugh Walker overruled the tens of millions of Californians who declared what all civilizations have known.
If so, Rush is right. A coup d’etat has occurred.
Except they can’t, because homosexuals cannot marry each other. A homosexual ‘marriage’ is like a round square. It is logically incoherent.
But Californians voted against this.
How can the state so called leaders undo what we have voted?
Also, I believe it is erroneous to use the term “gay/homosexual” marriage. God created marriage to be between man and woman. Let homosexuals continue to be known as “Un” civil unions).
Regardless your views on gay issues, this means that our initiative process is meaningless if the state so desires.
The sodomites from all the other sane states, just to make a point and to press the issue, will now go to KKKalifornia, get “married,” and return to their home states and then file lawsuits to force their state to recognize it. Bet me they won’t.
If you own a business which employs homosexuals, you can bet your bank account that they will.
Another excellent reason not to visit or to live in California. One of these days the whole state is going to sink in the ocean.
I won’t bet against your premise, but that’s exactly how same sex marriage will be de facto legalized in all 50 states. Full faith and credit clause.....and frankly, I’m surprised no one’s done it already.
The downward spin is going to be unbelievable now. Most here have no idea.
