Defending the Separation of Laws! Keep Fanatics Off OUR Constitution!

Legal Suit Filed Against Prop 8; It’s Unconstitutional!!!

I’ve been saying all along that Prop 8 is unconstitutional, and it doesn’t matter what the majority vote say’s.

Prop 8 discriminates against people in favor of the Mormon Church and other Christian’s that backed Prop 8!

The claim that it’s a religious liberty issue is false because it actually violates my own religious liberty as a Buddhist!

The claim that ‘marriage’ belongs to the Christian’s is false as well. The church never adopted the practice of marriage until around the 8th century, and our civil laws are inherited Pagan laws passed to us from the Pagan people. The practice of marriage was for the purpose of proving property rights and heirs.

Marriage is NOT a Christian invention!

California’s constitution protect the minority from an over bearing majority, and our laws also call for the separation church laws and state laws, get that through your head.

We do NOT live in a theocracy!

Legal Suit Filed Against Prop 8; It’s Unconstitutional! [Read More]
“If the voters approved an initiative that took the right to free speech away from women, but not from men, everyone would agree that such a measure conflicts with the basic ideals of equality enshrined in our constitution. Proposition 8 suffers from the same flaw – it removes a protected constitutional right – here, the right to marry – not from all Californians, but just from one group of us,” said Jenny Pizer, a staff attorney with Lambda Legal. “That’s too big a change in the principles of our constitution to be made just by a bare majority of voters.”

“A major purpose of the constitution is to protect minorities from majorities. Because changing that principle is a fundamental change to the organizing principles of the constitution itself, only the legislature can initiate such revisions to the constitution,” added Elizabeth Gill, a staff attorney with the ACLU of Northern California.

The lawsuit was filed today in the California Supreme Court on behalf of Equality California and 6 same-sex couples who did not marry before Tuesday’s election but would like to be able to marry now.

The groups filed a writ petition in the California Supreme Court before the elections presenting similar arguments because they believed the initiative should not have appeared on the ballot, but the court dismissed that petition without addressing its merits. That earlier order is not precedent here.

“Historically, courts are reluctant to get involved in disputes if they can avoid doing so,” said Shannon Minter, Legal Director of NCLR. “It is not uncommon for the court to wait to see what happens at the polls before considering these legal arguments. However, now that Prop 8 may pass, the courts will have to weigh in and we believe they will agree that Prop 8 should never have been on the ballot in the first place.”

Hey!?! How does my civil marriage undermine your screwed up religious marriage? Civil marriage belongs to the people, religious marriage belongs to the church. People have a CHOICE to go to a church. Civil marriage is an Old Pagan practice
