Happy marriage in sunny California
Posted by Ron Coleman on May 15, 2008
Personally, I favor gay marriage, but I think it would be much better if it were adopted through political, rather than judicial, channels — though I realize that some would call that a distinction without a difference where California is concerned. . . .
I had been saying the same thing on Dean’s World most of last year (and would link to that chain of posts but, alas, there’s not such thing any more on that blog — here’s one ), except the favoring part. The next step, of course, is the proposal in California of a constitutional amendment to reverse this decision (since the Cali court claims to act under constitutional color), and, depending on California’s procedure for making a constitutional change, myriad legal, political and judicial attempts to keep that off the ballot and at all costs prevent the occurrence of democracy … the whole tiring, usual thing that has played out everywhere.
It’s kind of like the revenge of Rose Bird!
