In yet another of the endless line of lame, no chance in hell last ditch efforts by anti-gay groups and individuals to try to stop same-sex marriage in California. The California Supreme Court has once again, and rightfully so shot down the latest lawsuit brought forth that would have halted county clerks from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
SCOTUSblog has the news:
For the second time in the past eight days, the California Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to order county clerks across the state to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. In a brief order, without a noted dissent, the state court turned down a plea by the clerk of San Diego County to halt all such licensing until the legal status of the “Proposition 8″ ban is further clarified.
The state court is still considering two pleas to keep “Proposition 8″ intact throughout most if not all of California, on the theory that it remains binding in the state despite a federal judge’s 2010 decision striking it down in the case of two same-sex couples. One of those challenges is by the sponsors of the ballot measure, the other by the San Diego County clerk. State officials and the clerks of 20 other California counties are resisting those requests.
It’s time that these losers stop beating this dead horse. It’s glue. It’s over. And its time that they give up.
