Gay Marriage Banned in California

Proposition 8 passed in California, banning gay marriage. Actually, it already was illegal but was overturned by a judge who said the law violated the equal protection clause of California's constitution. Prop 8 amended the state constitution to include the phrase "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

I feel bad for all the gay people who rushed to get married after the judge declared the first ban unconstitutional. I do, however, like to see states deciding these things for themselves. Hopefully this doesn't end up in the Supreme Court which will ultimately result in nine people deciding the issue for the whole country.
