A federal judge ruled on Thursday to allow same-sex couples to marry in California, starting on August 18, handing another victory to supporters of gay rights in a case that both sides have said is likely to end up in the U.S. Supreme Court.

This WILL happen all over the country, eventually. Another hate-filled law struck down!

To quote "Whoopi Goldberg", If you don't believe in same sex marriage, then don't marry some one of the same sex. It is called Live and Let Live!

Why is the media making such a big deal out of this ? Why not just leave these folks alone and WORRY ABOUT SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT ?

I am really happy that so many people here are for gay rights!! I've been trying to post as many of these stories as possible and its actually nice to see that people are beating me to the punch! I'm really happy for this decision, because for whatever reason a lot of people in this country will take their cues from california!
