California's Prop 8 Ruled Unconstitutional

A three-judge panel with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution by stripping gay Californians of the right to marry.


U.S. district judge Vaughn Walker struck down the measure in 2010. That decision was appealed by a bunch of bigoted douchebags claiming Walker's sexual orientation constituted bias.


Today's verdict will likely be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court by those same bigoted douchebags.
