California Supreme Court Upholds Prop 8

In a 6-1 vote members of the California Supreme Court ruled to dismiss the claims against Prop. 8 and uphold the ban on same sex marriage with one curious twist, the 18,000 marriages already performed will remain valid. How this court can rule to have two different classes of GLBT people, the haves and the have nots, will pose an interesting question for explanation. Meanwile there are protest marches scheduled all over the country including Boston, which is meeting at Copley square tonight at 7:00PM. This outcome is unfortunate but is merely another step in our eventual equality, nothing more.
