LIPSTICK: It's been all over the news, but Dipstick, do you want to give us an update/political commentary about what happened and where we're going from here? We've been waiting patiently. [tapping fingers on desk]
In the meantime, patient readers, have a listen to what this fella has to say.
Sorry Lip, I was busy following all the tweets, reading about the celebrity reactions and trying to interview people involved in the decision. Plus I took a day off yesterday to go to the beach. (See cute pic of Olive in her first kayak ride) Guess I let you L&D followers down.
Here's my take. The court ruled that Prop 8 will stand, but those 18,000 people married last year in California are still married. WTF? How can that be okay? Some gay people have rights and others don't? THAT doesn't seem constitutional to me. Perhaps this could be our in on getting this whole thing over-turned. You legal scholars out there, (Mossy) be sure to let me know if I'm way off base here.
In the meantime, all the gay rights organizations are saying we're going to take this back to the voters, perhaps as early as 2010. I'm all in favor of that, because I really do believe the pendulum is swinging in the direction of justice and if asked to vote again for gay marriage, Californians will vote YES!
