Yesterday, the same folks who brought us passage of Prop 8 in California, filed briefs to continue their good work and officially anull the marriage of 18,000 same-sex couples who were legally wed in the brief window when it was allowed in California.
Say the crusaders…
“Proposition 8’s brevity is matched by its clarity,” one of the briefs read. “There are no conditional clauses, exceptions, exemptions, or exclusions: ‘Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.’
” … Its plain language encompasses both pre-existing and later-created same-sex (and polygamous) marriages, whether performed in California or elsewhere. With crystal clarity, it declares that they are not valid or recognized in California.”
