  1. I understood the SCOTUS Prop 8 ruling to be pretty clear – These people have no standing because they suffer no injury.

    Point and laugh at them (and hilariously, NOM has been whining that people have been mocking them – the bully crying that they cannot bully anymore).

      Exactly, waiting 25 days was pointless since this guy’s group didn’t have the standing to ask for the case to be reviewed!

      And it’s these people who should be ashamed for going out of their way to disadvantage gay people.

    2. Exactly, and Pugno, etc. are forgetting that the two couples who brought the original suit have been waiting to get married for close to five years now. So lifting the stay, is being done to give these people the immediate remedy they deserve, because the other side — who didn’t even have standing — unnecessarily held them up. Everyone else who benefits from this immediate remedy gets to go along for the ride, but the two couples who actually went to court and went through the ordeal are who the court is most concerned about here … as well they should be!

  2. Who cares, they lost, nobody is interested in these time wasters any longer.

    The purpose of ending part 3 of DOMA and Prop. 8 was that the bigots had NO standing, meaning they were not the injured parties. They have no concept of what the law means, ignorant demented religious loons.

    I daresay we will hear similar rants from the C4M freaks and others once the Marriage Bill passes in a few weeks.

      Section 3 of DOMA was ruled unconstitutional, outright. The “no standing” decision applies only to the Prop 8 case.

  4. Not only bigots – very bad losers.

  5. The stay was by the Circuit Court on the District Court decision. It was not a requirement in the first place, and was designed to forestall marriages that might later be challenged if Prop 8 were upheld. As SCOTUS has determined they have no standing, their efforts have all been in vain, and their chances for reconsideration are practically zero, even though they’re not prevented from making the attempt. Gay Pride in San Francisco will be particularly festive tomorrow:

  6. The objections and proposals to raise further court cases from these people are clearly about milking this cash cow dry.
    These people don’t give a toss about either side they just want to keep the stupid and the haters putting their money on the plates or in the mail to keep their income
    Shame on them all. Leave us be.

  7. Wha-a-a-a-h! wha-a-a-a-h! wha-a-a-ah! Boy do they cry. Sore losing wankers indeed!

  8. Oops teddies thrown out of the pram I see.

    Unfortunatly the haters have not gone away. they will fight state by state in the US and will constantly lobby politicians to re-ban SSM. The will do it in the US, they ARE doing it in France, and they will do it here. Be prepared. We have very nearly won a battle, but have we won the war?

  9. The 25-day rule applies to case in which the Court actually rules. The Court didn’t rule here. They basically throw out the appeal. Therefore the lower court’s decision was the last valid ruling on the case. But there was a stay until the SCOTUS decision. The judge lifted that stay immediately. Gay marriage goes on. Dead issue. And so what? The DOMA also stopped a deportation within two hours of that ruling. Is that now invalid too? These anti-gay factions are just the sorest of losers. Trying to make people wait 25 days.

    What sour losers they are. Accept you lost and go away.They do not deserve to be given any air time to continue to breathe their hatred.

    Er… not that he’s bitter or nothing.

    Sounds like a sore loser to me!!
