Judicial Legislation

Judge re-writes California Constitution.
(08-04) 14:34 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- A federal judge today struck down Proposition 8, the voter-passed November 2008 initiative that defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker found that the ban on same-sex marriage violated the constitutional due process and equal protection rights of a pair of couples - one lesbian and one gay - who sued.
Due process? What process?

Equal protection?
Whether you are homo or hetro, we all have the same rights.
The judge ordered an injunction against enforcement of Prop. 8 but issued a temporary stay until he decides whether to suspend his ruling while it is being appealed. The stay means that same-sex couples are still prohibited from marrying.
Well, at least the judge didn't completely poke a stick into the eye of the people of California.

"Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license," Walker wrote in a 136-page rulin
Wrong! A homo can get married just like a hetro.

Did this Judge always have a desire to marry a sibling?
Did he want to marry his father?
The constitutional right to marry, Walker said, "protects an individual's choice of marital partner regardless of gender."
Of which right does this nut job speak?

And don't make me go all Tina Turner on your ass!

Whether you are homo or hetro, we all have the same rights.
