*So if you didn’t catch the late night news yesterday and didn’t hear the clamor in California, you may have not realized what happened. Basically, gay marriage is legal again in the state.
After a long hard battle against conservative Christians and pro-family folks, the gays finally made progress in the fight for same-sex marriage.
Last election season (Nov. 08) was a trying time for religious folks and the homosexual community as the right or privilege in some eyes to marry the same-sex was on the chopping block.
After Californians passed Prop 8, which banned same sex marriage, folks weren’t playing when they said, “This isn’t over.”
Promptly in January of this year, two unlikely lawyers joined forces and got what they wanted at the end of the day… a overriding judgment.
So what now? Is the city going to burn down? Are gays going to rush to the altar? Are Christians going to burn their crosses and picket in San Francisco?
Well, let me tell you what’s going to happen. On the religious end of the spectrum folks are going to be holding prayer sessions to pray away the gay. Statewide fasts and revivals will be held and preachers will sing their songs of fire and brimstone. I’m not knocking any of that, I’m just saying that’s what’s going to happen. On the gay side of things, I know I’d be hesitant to run out and get married this time, because just like that, my marriage can be annulled. Instead, homosexual couples are going to wait it out to make sure it’s safe to come out again and then try getting married before new legislation is introduced to override the override. More gay pride parades are guaranteed to pop off all over the state for sure.
Whether you are for or against same-sex marriage, it’s happening. Hopefully the city will not burn down and people will go about these battles in a civil way.
