…and by "us" I mean me and my husband Alex and the other 18,000 same sex marriages that were legally performed prior to November 4. The Yes on 8 campaign wants to invalidate 18,000 same sex marriages – they've filed a brief with the California Supreme Court to that effect today.
The sponsors of Proposition 8 asked the California Supreme Court on Friday to nullify the marriages of the estimated 18,000 same-sex couples who exchanged vows before voters approved the ballot initiative that outlawed gay unions.
The Yes on 8 campaign filed a brief arguing that because the new law holds that only marriages between a man and a woman are recognized or valid in California, the state can no longer recognize the existing same-sex unions.
"Proposition 8's brevity is matched by its clarity. There are no conditional clauses, exceptions, exemptions or exclusions," reads the brief co-written by Pepperdine University law school dean Kenneth Starr, the former independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton….
The measure's backers announced Friday that Starr, a former federal judge and U.S. solicitor general, had signed on as their lead counsel and would argue the cases.
Remember how so many people in the Yes on 8 movement said they weren't interested in going after the marriages that already had been performed? More lies in the avalanche of lies that came from the Yes-on-8 bigots.
Aren't these people supposed to be against divorce? Now they are filing a suit to direct the state to divorce me? THIS SUCKS.
I haven't told HP. He is across the room playing on his Macbook and he looks so happy.
I'm not going to tell him. No reason to share this misery.
