Both Sides in the Same-Sex Marriage Debate Discuss Next Steps
Monday, May 19, 2008
This is not likely to be the end of the story. Opponents of same-sex marriage are already hard at work, trying to get the question of gay marriage back on the state election ballot. This time, they're seeking an amendment to the state constitution, which would overturn the ruling by the state Supreme Court. Supporters of that effort say they have enough signatures to get it on the November ballot. We have yet to hear from the California Secretary of State's office to know whether they actually have achieved that.
Today, we're going to look back on last week's court decision, which will make California the only state, aside from Massachusetts that allows same-sex marriages.
