While most saw the California Supreme Court accepting the same-sex marriage cases Wednesday as a fait accompli — lawyers on both sides always said they expected the matter to be decided by the state’s highest court — some conservatives saw it as a potential fundraising boost.
“At least three justices already support the notion of ‘same-sex marriages,’ so the writing seems be on the wall that the state high court wants California to become another Massachusetts,” said former Assemblyman Larry Bowler, R-Elk Grove, among proponents of a proposed state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. “While regular folks are preparing to celebrate Christmas, the California Supreme Court and the California Legislature are scheming to destroy marriage and the people’s vote on marriage. The only remaining option is for the people to rise up, donate $2 million to place the VoteYesMarriage.com amendment on the California ballot, and pass it to permanently and fully protect marriage from the threat of judges and politicians.”
Any “regular folks” care to comment?
