Michael Ramirez on Gay Marriage
The Limit on Marriage Constitutional Amendment has qualified by initiative and will appear on the California November general election ballot.
Supporters of gay rights have asked the California Supreme Court to block a November ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriages.
In a legal brief filed late Friday with the high court, the gay rights groups argue that the initiative is a “revision” of the state Constitution, which would require involvement of the Legislature, rather than simply an amendment, which can be approved by a majority vote in an election.
The California courts in the past have been very reluctant to throw out a measure before going to the voters. However, who knows what this court will do?
The Alliance Defense Fund has vowed to fight this latest legal challenge to allowing California voters decide the gay marriage issue.
â€œEquality California and its allies are desperate to evade democracy. First, they used the courts to erase the votes of nearly 5 million Californians who voted to protect marriage. Now, they are trying to silence the peopleâ€™s voice forever,â€ said ADF Senior Counsel Glen Lavy. â€œThis is just another attempt to force a radical political agenda upon the people of California. The opponents of marriage are willing to use any means necessary to impose their will.â€
â€œADF and ProtectMarriage will defend the right of the people to participate in the democratic process and vote on the constitutional amendment,â€ Lavy added.
The gay marriage proponents are obviously afraid of another election. They will lose and gay marriage AGAIN will not be recognized.
Sadly, the legal challenges will not end by the homosexual lobby.
