Judge Says Calif. Can't Ban Gay Marriage

Read all about it folks...click here to read about the judge who rules that prohibiting gays from marrying is unconstitutional.


"It appears that no rational purpose exists for limiting marriage in this state to opposite-sex partners," Kramer wrote.

The judge wrote that the state's historical definition of marriage, by itself, cannot justify the denial of equal protection for gays and lesbians.

A pair of bills pending before the California Legislature would put a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage on the November ballot. If California voters approve such an amendment, as those in 13 other states did last year, that would put the issue out of the control of lawmakers and the courts.
NO RATIONAL PURPOSE??? So everyone, in his view, since God ordained marriage in the Garden of Eden, has been irrational in limiting marriage to one man and one woman.

Rulings like this one will make it easier to get constitutional fixes in states across the country. Now everyone can see what a state judge is willing to do to trump the will of the people. Constitutional protection is the only way.
