Yesterday the State Supreme Court made California the second state to legalize gay "marriage." They did so in a 4-3 decision that overturned legislation which had banned "marriage" for same-sex couples. Stunningly, the will of the California electorate was effectively overruled by the opinion of one unelected official. And what may come as a surprise to some, six of the seven justices were Republican appointees. 

The City Attorney who argued the case for the plaintiffs had this to say:

 

"Today the California Supreme Court took a giant leap to ensure that everybody -- not just in the state of California, but throughout the country -- will have equal treatment under the law."

 

That's odd. Last time I checked, folks with homosexual orientations have always had "equal treatment under the law" with respect folks with heterosexual orientations: both groups have been free to marry, just not (until recent years) with someone of the same sex.

 

One is left to wonder when "equal treatment" will allow brothers to marry their sisters, mothers to marry their sons, a woman to marry her dolphin (oops!--that's already been done), and, in light of recent news, a pogonia to marry its (er...his, her?) gardener.
