Calif. Court Voids S.F. Same-Sex Marriages (AP) - The California Supreme Court ruled unanimously Thursday that San Francisco's mayor overstepped his authority by issuing same-sex marriage licenses this spring. The court also voided all the marriages of gay and lesbian couples sanctioned by the city. The court said the city violated the law when it issued the certificates and performed the marriage ceremonies in a monthlong wedding march that began Feb. 12, since both legislation and a voter-approved measure defined marriage as a union between a man and woman.
It is on times like this I am happy to be in the Philippines. What sort of country celebrates the accomplishment of stripping a minority of a basic right it asks for? I am appalled by this. Really. This appalls me more than things like war and stuff because this ins't even a political agenda or a terrorrist thing. This is about people who want to live and be happy and other people who want to be the only ones who have such a right.
