First Topic – Violence Continues as CA Supremes Agree to Hear Challenge to Prop 8
The California Supreme Court has refused to grant a preliminary injunction that gay marriage advocates requested to stop Prop 8, which defines marriage as one man and one woman, from going into effect. The ruling at least temporarily affirms that California voters have a constitutional right to amend their own constitution to protect marriage. While refusing to grant a preliminary injunction the court did agree to hear the case. The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), the group responsible for securing Prop 8 on the California ballot, applauded that decision because of the need for finality and certainty in this process. Meanwhile, violence continues around the country as the angry “voices of tolerance” in the gay movement picket churches and attack those who supported Prop 8. Maggie Gallagher, President of NOM is with us.
