Prop 8 Decision (developing)

Apparently proponents of Proposition 8, the CA initiative that banned same-sex marriage in November 2008, have already asked for a stay of a ruling that hasn’t been delivered yet. Their reasoning? It would prevent the “harms” that would occur during the window between the ruling (if it is against proponents) and an appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Judge Walker’s ruling has not even hit the press yet (it is due to be released between 1pm and 3pm Pacific time, so that’s 4pm and 6pm for those of us on the East Coast), and they’re asking for a stay. Right. Must prevent said “harms” from happening in the same week that a lot of press has been given to a trend that further illustrates the “sanctity of marriage” that supposedly must be protected at all costs.

*sigh* It’s events like this that have turned me into a social libertarian and a cynic when it comes to straight people deciding issues related to gay rights. The hypocrisy is simply overwhelming. To be continued tonight after the ruling is released…
