California's Proposition 8 and Judicial Tyranny

This November California's proposed Proposition 8 would amend the California Constitution to read:
Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.
What Prop 8 has to do with Judicial Tyranny? Let me explain. In 2000, by means of a ballot initiative, the People of California voted 61.4% in favor of Proposition 22 which altered Section 300 of the California Civil Code to define marriage as
a personal relation arising out of a civil contract between a man and a woman, to which the consent of the parties capable of making that contract is necessary.
Predictably since that time, the radical left has thrown the whole issue into the courts and succeeded in overruling the will of the people on the matter.

Today, traditional marriage and family advocates are once again trying to maintain that sacred institution by means of a Constitutional amendment. Advocates hope that the amendment would take the issue out of the hands of the courts by adding a new section to the California Constitution (Section 7.5) to Article I, but I would not hold my breath.

The people of California need to understand that the Judicial tyrants in their state don't care if the people vote in favor of this measure. They do not care if it is placed within the State's Constitution for a time. There is absolutely no way that Proposition 8 will stand for long. State Supreme Court Judges throughout the country have made a habit of invalidating and striking down ballot initiatives. The "Men (and Women) in Black" are just biding their time until they can strike Proposition 8 down as well.
