California Lt. Gov.: Gay marriage ruling 'was about human beings, human dignity'

The Supreme Court dismissed an appeal over same-sex marriage on jurisdictional grounds, ruling Wednesday that private parties do not have "standing" to defend California's voter-approved ballot measure (known as Proposition 8) barring gay and lesbian couples from state-sanctioned wedlock.

The ruling clears the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California.

    Did any of the statement (Human Beings, and Human Dignity), sink in on those four foot thick republican skulls? If not, don't worry about it. After the next elections you can all donate your skulls to your local bone banks.

    As the GOP is all about de-humanizing the poor, immigrants and Gays, you might as well expect that they simply don't see the problem here.

    You can be a parent of the same sex and your child will grow up to be a normal responsible human being.
    There are a lot of man/woman unions that are toxic so the kids still learn that fighting and bickering is the way to grow up to be.
