One down...

Proposition 8 is DEAD!*

* - For now. There will obviously be appeals

Now, let's start working on Amendment 2 (Florida, banning the right to gay marriage), Proposition 102 (Arizona, banning the right to gay marriage), and Initiative 1 (Arkansas, banning same-sex couples from adoption). This is a start, but we're not there yet.

I am pondering how a Supreme Court decision on one of these laws will affect all of the others. Can they strike them all down at once, I wonder? Given previous examples (e.g. Jim Crow), I believe that they can.

A SCOTUS decision on these would supersede. Federal law supersedes state law.

I'm willing to bet the PRIDE Alliance I'm in, and the other ones around my state will be willing to do protests and shit to get people motivated on getting rid of Amendment 2.

Bear in mind that this does not mean that people can marry yet. The judge put forth a stay on the ruling, so that the other side could appeal (which they have already done).

One might say that vyctori has been achieved.

"With a stroke of his pen, Judge Walker has overruled the votes and values of 7 million Californians who voted for marriage as one man and one woman."

Those poor, poor people.
