California Court Affirms Right to Gay Marriage

Quick, I got to buy stock in glitter.

The California Supreme Court, striking down two state laws that had limited marriages to unions between a man and a woman, ruled on Thursday that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry.

About time. I was starting to feel like I was living in medeval times here. So what if Bob and Greg want to get married? As long as they keep the blinds closed when they're having sex like the police told me I had to start doing, then all is good.

The 4-to-3 decision, drawing on a ruling 60 years ago that struck down a state ban on interracial marriage, would make California the second state, after Massachusetts, to allow same-sex marriages.

I'm glad gay people can marry now. Why you ask? Easy. Because there is nothing funnier and more colorful than two gay men arguing. Two gay women? Not so funny. Disturbing actually. Looks like a twilight zone episode based at a truck stop. Now of course I'm not talking about that GOOD type of lesbians, you know, like the ones on those videos kept behind the curtains in the back of the video store. But I've yet to see that in real life outside of strip clubs. Wait, what where we talking about?

The decision, which becomes effective in 30 days unless the court grants a stay, was greeted with celebrations at San Francisco City Hall, where thousands of same-sex marriages were thrown out by the courts four years ago.

Court grants a stay in 5,4,3...

It was denounced by religious and conservative groups that promised to support an initiative proposed for the November ballot that would amend the California Constitution to ban same-sex marriages and overturn the decision.

And here come the religious nuts getting into everyone elses business. Wish we could ban them from expressing their opinions all the time. Yes we know, we're all going to hell. And if these are the people that populate Heaven, shit, Hell's sounding nice and fucking quiet.
