Judge Walker Said He WILL POSSIBLY Allow Gay Marriage to Resume August 18th!


Gays and Lesbians waited outside city halls in California this morning, on pins and needles! The wait is over! ALMOST.

Judge Walker has ruled, Gay Marriage in California CAN RESUME even though Prop 8 is going through the appeals process –  possibly as  soon as August 18th.

Vaughn R. Walker, the chief judge of the Federal District Court in San Francisco, who invalidated Proposition 8 in last week’s decision, had issued a temporary stay to allow for arguments whether same-sex ceremonies should be allowed to be performed pending an appeal by supporters of the ban.

Walker agreed to give its sponsors until Aug. 18 to appeal his ruling to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. No new marriages can take place until then. The judge DOES NOT think the appeal will even happen, unless the State pushes the issue. And  Governor  Arnold has already stated, he thinks Prop 8 is unconstitutional.

LAST WEEK, After carefully weighing the testimony of a bevy of social scientists, Walker found that the idea of heterosexual marriage is based on “antiquated and discredited notions of gender.” And that arguments against gay marriage are “nothing more than tautologies.”

And: “Proposition 8…enshrines in the California Constitution a gender restriction that the evidence shows to be nothing more than an artifact of a foregone notion that men and women fulfill different roles in civic life.”
