California high court set to rule on same-sex marriage case

California high court set to rule on same-sex marriage case

Quote:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A ruling on whether California should legalize same-sex marriage is expected Thursday from the state's supreme court.
http://i.l.cnn.net/cnn/2008/US/05/14...arriage.gi.jpg
California's supreme court is expected to rule Thursday on whether to legalize gay marriage.

The decision will be announced about 1 p.m. ET, according to the court's Web site.

Several gay and lesbian couples, along with the city of San Francisco and gay rights groups, had sued to overturn state laws allowing only marriages between a man and a woman.

If the state justices rule in favor of the plaintiffs, California would become the second state to allow same-sex couples to legally wed. Massachusetts adopted the practice in 2004, and gay couples don't need to be state residents to wed there.

Five other jurisdictions around the world have legalized same-sex marriage: Belgium, the Netherlands and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec.

San Francisco officials in 2004 allowed gay couples in the city to wed, prompting a flood of applicants crowding the city hall clerk's office. The first couple to wed then was 80-year-old Phyllis Lyon and 83-year-old Dorothy Martin, lovers for 50 years.

"We have a right just like anyone else to get married to the person we want to get married to," Lyon said at the time.
Don't Miss

* Hospital ratings set by gay-rights groups
* Lesbos ladies launch lesbian lawsuit

One issue before the justices is whether San Francisco's laws carried legal weight when the rest of the state banned gay marriages. Gay rights advocates argued the state was violating their civil rights by limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples. The state law in question is the Defense of Marriage Act, Proposition 22.

Oral arguments in the case in March lasted more than three hours, a sign of the political and legal issues at stake. Six separate cases were consolidated.

Groups saying they were promoting a pro-family agenda had vowed to fight a statewide law on same-sex marriage.

"The government should promote and encourage strong families," said Glen Lavy of the Alliance Defense Fund. "The voters realize that defining marriage as one man and one woman is important because the government should not, by design, deny a child both a mother and father."

Regardless of the ruling, an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is likely. The justices have never addressed the question of same-sex marriage

Yup, congratulation to homosexual about overturn the gay marriage ban, however it would have vote in November but I'm really doubt about vote would pass to ban on gay marriage due higher percent of liberal in this state.

Family Council is just blah, also I want pull gay issue out of politic because of personal, I don't support to bring personal stuff to politic, such as congress, supreme court and others, and gay marriage should legal in over USA and keep other's business out.

now, what can I do to get my cousin to have the same "marriage benefits" as married people? Seriously, you can't tell if people are marrying as lovers or as friends.

I meant them too. although if they had sex just for one night, they could easily get pregnant without a third party.

Speaking of children, my aunt helped my other aunt, who was single, raised her son . They lived together for a long time.. but there were no benefits that would have made it easier on them.

Reba, a hundred years ago, people would have said the SAME thing about gay people or black people marrying.
There is NO reason whatsoever why GLB folks shouldn't be able to marry. You don't like it? GOOD! It doesn't even affect you!

Oh give me a break. Animals and humans aren't even of the same species! There is NO way that a cat/dog/pig/jellyfish/insect/snake/fill in the blank here with whatever animal, can even consent.
why is it SUCH a big deal to some people that people in a relationship have the same shape of genitalia? We are ALL the same on the inside!

You can't compare black people with homosexual people.

Laws that affect my society do affect me. I don't live on an isolated island; I live within my society. I have as much right to voice my displeasure with our courts as any one else does.
