Well they're also asking for a stay - which means no same sex marriages until this goes through the appeal process

And oh yes...supporters of Prop 8 are appealing....

It'll go to 9th circuit court...next stop

U.S. Supreme Court - which will kick it back...like they've done previously

That's true, but it's progress, and it's getting attention again, especially because of the reason for the ruling. That's the important part.

If only this federal ruling would apply to all states' that have such laws on the book. I mean, if its unconstitutional in California, it has to be unconstitutional in Florida too right?

I cannot think of a stupider issue in politics today than the anti-gay marriage crowd.

That would be great. Last time I checked the Constitution is the same no matter where you are in the country. I blame the fundies.

Three election cycles in a row now we've had anti-gay marriage amdnements on the ballot in Florida and they always pass easily. I just find it so funny/sad that the first and second amendment wasn't enough, that they needed yet another. I won't be surprised if #4 shows up soon. Its the best way for Republicans to get out the vote. It will never go away for that very reason.

Georgia passed one in 2004, and it is rarely challenged. Honestly, the state doesn't need an amendment on every ballot because outside of the big cities, Georgia is extremely Republican and unfortunately it would win every time. The county I live in now is at least 75% Republican, and every election turns into which person can get the church folks.

That's the best thing about the Tea Party types, its causing massive infighting amongst Republicans and generally its the crazy Christian types getting the boot. We've had extremely negative campaign ads on tv here recently and the primary isn't even over yet. I can handle Republicans who just hate taxes and liberal governments, I just don't need any more of the American Christian Taliban types.

Florida is very 50/50 and always a swing state for basically every election. The north is full of Republican rednecks, Central Florida is split among rich Republicans and hippie liberal types, and then South Florida is organized chaos haha. I basically live in the most divided area of the country. So I guess it could be worse.
