    Calif.'s Top Court Blocks Gay Marriages

    By DAVID KRAVETS, Associated Press Writer

    SAN FRANCISCO - The California Supreme Court on Thursday ordered an immediate halt to gay marriages in San Francisco, delivering a victory to conservatives who have fought for a month to block the ceremonies.



    The court did not rule on the legality of such marriages, and justices said they would hear such a case in May or June.


    The dispute began Feb. 12, when Mayor Gavin Newsom ordered his administration to issue same-sex marriage licenses. A steady stream of gay and lesbians from around the country have traveled to be married at City Hall, just a block from the Supreme Court.

    So the legal system is working exactly as it is supposed to.

    Think that will stop Bush from trying to change the constitution?

      He can try all he wants.

      It cannot happen without a significant majority of congress and ratification by 38 states.

        At least it puts a stop to the madness, until they can hear a reasonable( ) arguement to overturn the current law.

          Thank goodness the Founding Fathers were able to foresee the possibility of an extremist president who would change the constitution on a whim.

            Doesn't matter, this isn't a fight between gays who want to express their love and people who want to protect marriage. The people doing the fighting are homophobes vs greedy people who want marriage benefits.

              Too bad they couldn't do anything about possibility of an extremist president and congress who would write discriminatory federal laws, like the "Defense of Marriage Act"
              Yes they did - they set up a process for the Supreme Court to review laws to determine if they are constitutional.

              You really do need some civics lessons.

                You would be the wrong person to ask.

                Sort of like asking Clinton how to stay fauthful.

                Or OJ on how to hide a murder.

                Or Rush on how to buy drugs on the downlow.

                  Sorry I set you off pgrote. I didn't realize you were so sensitive to discussions about the constitution, especially when everything I wrote was accurate.

                    Yes. Framed in a negative context.

                    Good job. You are getting better at this. At least now you aren't lying. Just smearing.

                    You da man.

                        I think he would change the constitution single-handedly if he could.

                        Sorry pgrote, but I don't think those are such controversial statements.
                        Yes. He has tried and failed to do this multiple times. :-)

                        Knowing that he and his folks know what it takes to change the constitution he sneakily released details of how he was going to change the constitution without anyone knowing. Imaging the shock the rest of the country would feel if they actually publicized their plans.

                        Oh.

                        So you've built an argument around something that could never happen, right?

                        I see.

                        Like I said, you da man.
