Ok, if I have any of this wrong please inform me.
First, powers not specifically granted the federal government rest with the states...right?
The voters of the state of California said they didn't want gay marriage.
Homosexual Federal judge throws out the ballot initiative known as Prop 8, citing unconstitutionality.
Now how is it one judge can overrule to will of millions of voters?
Since this will be appealed (and it WILL go beyond the 9th), doesn't that mean, since the SCOTUS will almost definitely be decided by a tie breaker, that again, ONE person will decide for the millions of voters of California, which is an affront to the US Consitution? Will this not also make that one decision something of a mockery of our entire governmental process?
I'm all ears.
The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859
