    Apparently this was not unexpected. The guy’s a Republican and this is a hyper partisan gesture. According to those in the know he offer s nothing new to the petition that was previously filed and therefore it is unlikely that that the Supreme Court will halt the RESUMPTION (Pink News please start using the correct word) of marriages based on this.

  2. Ernest Dronenbug is a religious fundamentalist moron who will be fired before long. The petition will be binned and he will be soon afterwards.

  3. If the Supreme Court ruling isn’t enough to give you clarity and finality, it may just be that you are in a job that is well over your level of competence. Resign already.

      They will not do so…look at abortion for a glimpse into the future of our fight with these small-minded bigots…we are fighting the same group of people who continue to assail a woman’s right to choose. One good thing is that between abortion and Equal Rights, this group may run out of steam eventually, especially as the older bigots die off like the dinosaurs they are. Being on the wrong side of history is eventually deleterious to one’s health, fortunately.

  6. ‘All I’m really searching for is clarity’, he lied

  7. It’s pretty simple. If your job is to issue marriage licenses, then you take your orders from the state, not from Prop 8 supporters. If the government says to start issuing licenses, then you do it. If you have a problem with it, then you should find another job.

    If I was the Governor of California I will sack or fire him on the spot. Order him to clean his desk and get a scary hot and demanding US Marine to follow or excort him out of the building!

    You were told to issue marriage licenses to any straight and gay couple – you do it. No if, no buts and no excuses!

    Proposition 8 is dead, buried and unconstitutional … What part of that it it you do not understand!!!!!!!!

    Any one else with any objections?, I did not think so!!!!!

    The evil KKKristians have already lost not only this battle but the entire War itself, and yet they simply do not get it! Just like with abortion, the religious right will not leave the LGBT community in Peace no matter how many times they are defeated in their “Culture War” against Equality and Freedom for All. Perhaps it is time to begin to think about how to pursue legal remedies against these organizations and people in order to bankrupt their ‘war chests’….short of removing them from the population permanently, this seems a rational way to continue the endless fight against extremism….I just wish they’d all disappear like the cowards they truly are. They certainly are a stupid lot! They fight for Bigotry and we fight for our lives, so they will ALWAYS lose! LGBT people are much stronger than the bigots could ever be (and much smarter as well)!
