BREAKING: Prop 8 proponents ask Supreme Court to hear case…

What a crazy do for gay marriage. First a CT judge rules DOMA unconstitutional and now they haters behind Prop 8 have asked the Supreme Court to hear the case.

The proponents of Proposition 8 in California have petitioned the Supreme Court for certiorari to review the case, in a long-awaited and expected move.

Chris Geidner:

Specifically, they ask the court in a filing today to decide “Whether the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits the State of California from defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman.”

The primary arguments advanced by the proponents in their brief for why the Supreme Court should take the case is because, they argue, the case is “exceedingly important,” the appeals court misinterpreted Supreme Court cases used by the court to strike down the law, and the appeals court was wrong to hold that there was “no legitimate government purpose” for Proposition 8.
