No Harm To Heterosexual Marriages
In yet another sweeping victory for LGBT equality, Judge Vaughn R. Walker has ruled to deny a permanent stay on the recent ruling that struck down California's Proposition 8 (the voter approved marriage equality ban).
Judge Walker wrote: "California is able to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, as it has already issued 18,000 marriage licenses to same-sex couples and has not suffered any demonstrated harm as a result."
He did however, extended the temporary stay which remains in effect until August 18th.
Although proponents of Proposition 8 have appealed to the 9th Circuit Court, a permanent stay is considered highly unlikely.
A new day has come to California and hopefully, the rest of America...
Standing up (ok, sitting down) for our rights!
