The Majik Of Marriage...

Assuming Absoeffinglutely Amazing is factual enough.

How exactly will the litigation go???

Especially given:
Supporters of Proposition 8, the California initiative that eliminated the right of same-sex couples to marry last month, reacted with surprise and dismay this weekend to the announcement by the state's attorney general that he had reversed his position and would ask California's high court to invalidate the measure.

Jerry Brown, the state's attorney general—and a leading candidate to replace Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor in two years—filed papers on Friday asking the state Supreme Court to overturn Proposition 8, which amends the state's Constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman.

The decision is a major reversal for Brown, whose office argued against same-sex marriage in the spring, only to see the Supreme Court find a law banning gay marriage unconstitutional. After last month's election, in which 52 percent of voters effectively reinstated that law by supporting Proposition 8, Brown again said he would support the will of the people.

Now do not get me wrong here folks.

Simply because 52% of the electorate could vote that PI is a whole number, is not going to make it so...

SO how exactly do they want to work with the idea of 'the tyranny of the masses may not be a good enough idea'????

Or were they hoping to skip over that, and expect that by simply Waving the Blue Dress, that this would show that the Devil Is Fashionably Dressed in Prada Products, and therefore Gays should not be allowed to marry.

I think the folks who pimped Prop #8 failed to work out if their Proposition would in, of, and by itself, pass constitutional muster... NOR whether or not it would actually provide the legal frame work, in itself, to overturn established law, and hence, the already existing marriages...
