Ahem. Score another for Bowen. I bring you this prediction that I made in May of this year.
I predict that California will have a a constitutional amendment in defense of marriage, and that activists for the cause of gay marriage have made a fatal error. California has insured every right except the express permission to redefine marriage, and now the State Supreme Court has overstepped its bounds in defiance of the will of the people. It's going to get loud and ugly and it is now most definitely a constitutional crisis.
It's rather interesting to see the backtracking and hair splitting of those calling for a new legal challenge to this, the second and harsher rebuttal to the. Evidently there are two levels of constitutional amendment. Who knew? The claim is that the passage of Prop 8 represented basically a MAJOR change to the California Constitution and that it was worded as a MINOR change. And we are to know that a MAJOR change requires a different standard of passage than we just saw. Hoo brother.
So all the hectic business we just went through, according to activists for the cause of Gay Marriage wasn't a real constitutional change but a halfway real constitutional change. So we need an intervention to make a super duper really extra change to the constitution.
Somebody please do me the favor, lazybones that I am, to illustrate exactly what money all these same-sex couples aren't getting because obviously these people don't give a rats' about principle.
