On Wednesday, Chief U.S. District Judge,Vaughn Walker of San Francisco struck down California's ban on same-sex marriage, ruling that the voter-approved Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

Walker wrote in his opinion,
"Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples," .

"Race restrictions on marital partners were once common in most states but are now seen as archaic, shameful or even bizarre," he added. "Gender no longer forms an essential part of marriage; marriage under law is a union of equals."
To read more on this story head on over to CNN!

I've never understood why some laws and certain individuals discriminate against others based on who they choose to share their beds with...it's all so archaic and as Salt & Pepper rapped, none of your damn business!

Separation of church and state...I repeat, separation of church and state!

If lawmakers followed those guidelines set in the Constitution, legislation like Prop 8 would probably not be an issue, let alone exist.

*cranks up Kool & The Gang's "Celebration"!*
