The California Supreme Court has overturned a state same-sex marriage ban. It was a 4-3 decision that said domestic partnerships didn't amount to equal treatment with marriage.
The legislature has twice passed same-sex marriage laws that were vetoed by the governor. A petition drive is underway in California to make a same-sex marriage ban part of the California constitution.
Prediction: The Republican Party will jump on this. A bankrupt man stumbles on a stack of currency. Why worry about war, the economy, health care or the price of gasoline when there's a chance that two people of the same sex who love each other might be given the legal rights that other committed couples enjoy?
But note: The California court is made up of six Republicans and one Democrat.
