Prop. 8 gay marriage ban goes to Supreme Court

"The California Supreme Court agreed today to review legal challenges to Prop. 8, the voter initiative that restored a ban on same-sex marriage, but refused to permit gay weddings to resume pending a ruling.
Meeting in closed session, the state high court asked litigants on both sides for more written arguments and scheduled a hearing for next March. The court also signaled its intention to decide the fate of existing same-sex marriages, asking litigants to argue that question."
Let's hope they aren't assholes about it. It is a civil rights issue. But I am worried that they're going "to decide the fate of existing same-sex marriages" and putting those on the debate forum. They shouldn't even be up for discussion.
Via Feministe, who, as usual, has much more intelligent things to say than I do.
