Haters Fail Again In CA

Another failure by the Liberty Counsel in their desperate last minute bid to stop California's gay marriages:
A California state appeals court on Tuesday refused a motion by a conservative group to halt the rush by same-sex couples to marry. The Campaign for California Families argued that marriage licenses should not be issued until the legislature amends dozens of state laws addressing marriage to conform with the state Supreme Court ruling that gays and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to marry.

The organization was represented by the Virginia-based Liberty Counsel. It argued that the wording of the high allows the lower court to set the terms and schedule for implementing the decision. "The motion for stay or other extraordinary relief, submitted by the Campaign for California Families on June 12, 2008, is denied" the appeals court ruled.

It was the second loss for the group. Earlier this month the Supreme Court rejected a motion to stay its decision legalizing same-sex marriage until voters have a chance to consider a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage.
