I find it interesting that by limiting marriage to what marriage has
meant for thousands of years can lead one to conclude that it makes
those denied marriage outside of the definition thousands of years old,
to be inferior.

That makes as much sense that not allowing a cat in a dog show makes the
cat inferior. 

It, obviously, is a conclusion of irrational thinking, or, political
correctness, as usual, without substance. Unless, of course, those who
wish the definition to change to include themselves feel inferior,
already, and are attempting to make everyone else feel that they are
inferior, too.



Prop. 8 judge set to rule on Calif. gay marriages

Decision comes one week after judge struck down ban on same-sex unions


SAN FRANCISCO - The federal judge who overturned California's same-sex
marriage ban will rule Thursday on whether gay marriages should resume
immediately in the state or await an appeals court's input. 

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker said he would issue his decision
by noon on requests to impose a stay that would keep Proposition 8 in
effect while its sponsors appeal his decision.

California voters passed the ban in November 2008, five months after the
state Supreme Court legalized gay marriage.

Walker last week struck
it down as an unconstitutional violation of gay Californians' civil

"Moral disapproval alone is an improper basis on which to deny rights to
gay men and lesbians. The evidence shows conclusively that Proposition 8
enacts, without reason, a private moral view that same-sex couples are
inferior to opposite-sex couples," Walker wrote in his ruling.

Supporters argued the ban was necessary to safeguard the traditional
understanding of marriage and to encourage responsible childbearing.

Currently, same-sex couples can only legally wed in Massachusetts, Iowa,
Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire and Washington, D.C.
