Time is fast approaching for the debut of the next chapter in the book of California's Proposition Hate, er, 8.
A California Supreme Court hearing is scheduled for March 5. This follows from the suit filed by opponents of the amendment to the state's Constitution which became effective after a 52% majority expressed their opinion at the polls in November.
This amendment holds that roughly 10% of the marriages previously recognized under the law in 2008 would be invalidated without due cause or recourse and that no further marriages between same-sex minority couples would be permitted in the state.
Proponents of Proposition Hate, in filing their audacious counter suit, were apparently less than satisfied with having successfully enshrined heterosexual supremacy into the Constitution. They seem to be intent on destroying the happiness and security of every newly legitimized family that took advantage of the marriage option while it was temporarily legal. They have enlisted none other than the despicable Kenneth Starr of Whitewater fame to argue that those who were married while it was legal shall have their marriages disolved.
Compulsory imposition of Divorce, regardless of the will of the married couples and their families.
Meanwhile, a group organized to defend the rights of all to marriage in California has produced a video to argue their case in the court of public opinion.
