Gay Marriage Nixed
The California Supreme Court nixed Proposition 8, same sex marriage. They did however allow those that were married while the state allowed same sex marriage to stay married.
This was a good decision. The original idea of marriage was not just dedication to each other but also to have children. Without science this would not be possible by a gay female couple and is still impossible for a gay male couple.
Furthermore, it is fact that children do better with a traditional family structure. It is true that some heterosexual couples marry and do not and cannot have children but if that is know in the religious community in particular Catholic they are not supposed to be able to be married in church. Gay, unwilling, and unable couples may take offense but truly marriage is about the two fold purpose of becoming one. This is not complete until a child is born of both the people in the union. If you clear your mind and think about it this makes perfect sense.
