California Supreme Court Says Same-Sex Couples Have Right to Marry.

In a 4-3 decision, the justices said the state's ban on same-sex marriage violates the "fundamental constitutional right to form a family relationship." The ruling is likely to flood county courthouses with applications from couples newly eligible to marry when the decision takes effect in 30 days.

I am crying tears of joy right now. We're on our way out of the dark ages!!

My hope is that Californians find it in their hearts, minds, and souls to agree with today's decision by rejecting the religious right's likely attempt at a constitutional ban in the fall elections. I hope love, justice, and common sense trumps religious dogma and antiquated ideas about same-sex partnerships.

But for now, I'm celebrating!
