The California Supreme Court today will issue it's decision on whether or not lesbian and gay couples will have the freedom to marry in the state.

The Court heard oral arguments for the case on March 4, 2008. If the Court rules in favor of the freedom to marry, California will become the second state in the nation, following Massachusetts, to uphold a state constitution that doesn't recognize bigotry, hatred and discrimination as the law of the land.
