“California Supreme Court denies latest bid to revive gay marriage ban” | CNN

Sonya Hamasaki and Greg Botelho at CNN: Those trying to reinstitute Proposition 8 — the voter-backed referendum to ban gay marriage in California — lost once again in court on Wednesday, meaning no stop to such legal unions that resumed a few weeks ago . . . “Though the current California officials are unwilling to support the state constitution, we remain hopeful that one day Californians will elect officials who will,” Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal advocacy organization, said in a statement. “…The court’s decision today … does not end the debate about marriage in California.”
