Gay Marriage Resumes in California as SCOTUS Rejects Final Challenge

by at . Comments

The U.S. Supreme Court on Sunday denied a final request from Proposition 8 supporters to halt issuance of same sex marriage licenses in California.

Justice Anthony Kennedy rejected the appeal with no additional comment.

Supreme Court of the United States

Dozens of same-sex weddings have taken place in the state since Friday, following the Supreme Court’s decision last week to dismiss Proposition 8.

Prop 8 controversially banned gay marriage in the state in 2008, only to be thrown out by appellate courts on grounds that such a ban is unconstitutional.

The SCOTUS, which also struck down DOMA, determined that the Prop 8 petitioners lacked sufficient grounds to appeal the lower courts' decision.

As a formality, the high court said it would not make the Prop 8 judgment final until after a 25-day window in which supporters could request a re-hearing.

Which they did, but the SCOTUS was apparently eager to move on from this much-watched case, as Kennedy turned down the appeal almost immediately.

California thus becomes the 13th state in the nation with full marriage equality, with new licenses already being issued throughout the Golden State.

More same-sex marriages were expected take place Sunday in accordance with the Pride parade and a reception for newly-married couples in San Francisco.

Well, if you are straight, why are thinking about it? Mind your own business. Kids are only confused because hateful D-Bags like you make them feel wrong. And, lastly, you call yourself stable? Right.
