Freedom to Marry in CA? Maybe
In 2000, California voters passed Proposition 22, which denied the freedom to marry for gay, lesbian and transgender couples. Today, the California Supreme Court heard oral arguments challenging that law.
Maybe you remember back when Gavin Newsom, former Mayor of San Francisco, provided marriage licenses to same-sex couples and then those licenses were revoked.
His actions were a challenge -- albeit one that didn't pan out -- to the law. Now, if the Court votes in favor of... I don't know, equality, non-discrimination, that sort of thing... California could be the next state to join Massachusetts in granting all couples the same rights under the constitution. What a concept.
