CA Senator fights for gay's right to heterosexual marriage

In reaction to the recent California superior court ruling that the codified discrimination in Proposition 22, defining marriage as a contract between 'Ay man and Ay woman' was unconstitutional, State Sen. Bill Morrow (R-Oceanside), remarked......

"Contrary to the judge's twisted legal logic, this is not an equal protection case," Morrow said. "Every adult Californian already has equal access to marriage as provided by law, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. Instead, this actually is the establishment of a completely new privilege that never existed before."

Sure. All queers are welcome to marry a person of the opposite sex any time they want. This ruling, god forbid, would actually grant a new privilege - the equal access to marriage to the one you love, regardless of sexual orientation.

To make sure that the sacred right of all homosexuals to enjoy the rites of heterosexual marriage is not eroded by "activist judges" appointed by republican administations, Mr. Morrow has introduced a state ammendment proposal - text below.

"Existing statutory law provides that marriage is a personal
relation arising out of a civil contract between a man and a woman.
Existing statutory law further provides that only marriage between a
man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.
This measure would amend the California Constitution to provide
that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized
in California, as specified. The measure would further limit the
provision of the rights, responsibilities, benefits, and obligations
of marriage to a man and a woman, as specified."
