After Two-Week Temper Tantrum, California Supremes to Hear Challenge to Prop 8

If anything, it'll give the children a time-out two weeks in coming.

Question: If they do not rule in favor of the gay mob, what then? Considering how nasty the insane rage has been, who knows what the psychotic reaction could be.
California's Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to hear a legal challenge against the state's voter-approved ban on gay marriage and let the ban stand in the meantime.

A decision by the same court in May had opened marriage to same-sex couples in America's most populous state, one of a handful of states, provinces and mostly European countries where such unions are recognized.

When state voters passed the ban on November 4, social conservatives celebrated, but nationwide protests by gays and other ban opponents since then have given the debate new life.

The court case also pits two fundamental concepts of U.S. democracy against one another, with gay marriage advocates saying the proposition would open the doors to systematic repression of minorities and opponents saying courts must recognize the will of the people under separation of powers doctrine.

"I am optimistic that the Supreme Court will affirm that separate is not equal," San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said in a statement. "This is a great day for the rule of law and the voters of California," said Andrew Pugno, counsel for the gay marriage ban proponents.
Let's all hope the out of control, radical gay community will now enjoy a few months downtime and stop harassing ans intimidating people, though if I were in the California Supreme Court, I'd probably be prepared for all sorts of antics.
