    That twinge in your intestines
    Yea! "has no effect other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians “, according to Stephen Reinhardt, author of the majority opinion. The panel of three judges from the Ninth Circuit Court also found no bias on the part of Judge Vaughan Walker, who ruled in August 2010 that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional.

    Proponents of the bill will probably appeal, but this is an important milestone.

    Two courts have now ruled it unconstitutional. In my mind I consider this decision correct equal under the law. They will try and take it to the SCOTUS whether they will take the case or let the lower court ruling stand is the next step. The Catholic church, NOM, is every bit as guilty as the Mormons they just hid their money better. Kind of makes you wonder if Churches have 10's of millions of dollars to throw at this kind of thing why can't they be taxed?

    All Churches preaching hate should be taxed at the highest tax rate possible! (50% or more tax rate)

    The government has no business telling who can marry who. Good overruling.

    Cheers I say. Can't understand why prop 8 was ever writen to begin with. Why don't our leaders join us in the 21st century? 1930 wasn't that great...
