In California anyways.
In a ruling that has surprised no one given the fact that he telegraphed his intentions long before the trial began, Judge Walker has officially and single handedly taken it upon himself to subvert the democratic process and the will of the people, and re-made a fundamental human institution in accordance with his own will.
No longer, “the union of husband and wife in heart, body and mind”, it is now any two people who want to hang together for awhile and have the state give them the stamp of approval, or as the judge put it, merely “a union of equals”.
For those who don’t live in California, be thankful for now – and pray that the inevitable ruling in the Supreme Court will preserve the democratic process. Barring that, it is obvious a constitutional amendment is in order. One may be in order anyway. It will definitely be an issue (well another issue) this November.
What God has joined together, man has corrupted. It’s a very sad day for California, for our nation, for humanity.
