Another Victory in California - Gay Marriages Begin June 17th.

"The request to stay the effective date of the decision of the court filed on May 15, 2008, until after the November 2008 election is denied.

The decision filed on May 15, 2008 will become final on June 16, 2008 at 5 PM"

In another important decision the California Supreme Court declined to deny gay couples their rights under the Constitution of the State of California pending the uncertain outcome of the ballot initiative that out of state religious groups managed to buy ballot space for.

This was a vitally important victory for freedom. Moderate voters who may have been inclined to oppose gay marriage on theoretical grounds are not going to be as likely to cast a ballot that directly impacts the happy couples they are going to see this summer on their televisions. Only the most hard hearted person would cast a ballot to destroy another person's marriage.
