What the California Supreme Court did: California’s top court invalidated the state’s legislative bans on gay marriages.
What it means: Gays and lesbians in the Golden State will be getting married. Traditional marriage proponents will attempt to reverse the court’s decision with a state constitutional voter referendum.
Winners: The liberal media, left-wing Democrats, and all those who believe in non-democratic means of achieving policy ends.
Losers: Traditional marriage proponents. Separation of powers advocates. Anti-judicial activism advocates.
