Lawyers Ask California To Lift Gay Marriage Ban

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Supporters of gay marriage in California demanded that a court-ordered hold on same-sex marriages be lifted immediately on Wednesday after a dramatic policy reversal by the Obama administration.

KNX 1070’s Charles Feldman reports lawyers fighting the case against Prop. 8 have filed a motion asking the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals to lift its stay blocking same-sex marriages.

The stay was issued after a U.S. district judge found the gay marriage ban unconstitutional.

The court filing comes on the same day the White House says it will no longer defend the constitutionality of a law that bans the recognition of same-sex marriages.

        Sorry Equality,
        Adam and Eve, man and woman have the Right to be married. If you want to bump uglies, that fine but don’t push it on the majority. Pole smokers or carpet munchers should live their own lives and leave marriage out of it.
