The same court of appeals that ruled reciting the pledge of allegiance was unconstitutional now rules a ban on gay marriage to be unconstitutional. 9th US Circuit of Appeals.
By way of Fox News, California’s Proposition 8 was deemed a violation of the civil rights of gays and lesbians — therefore ruled unconstitutional.
Here is what the ruling stated:
"Although the Constitution permits communities to enact most laws they believe to be desirable, it requires that there be at least a legitimate reason for the passage of a law that treats different classes of people differently. There was no such reason that Proposition 8 could have been enacted,"
In 2008, California’s courts struck down laws in California that limited marriage to a man and a woman. And then in November 2008, proposition 8 was passed with 52-percent of the vote that would ban gay marriage.
This ruling will be appealed.
Here is what this court had to say about the pledge of allegiance in 2002.
U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled that the pledge’s reference to one nation "under God" violates school children’s right to be "free from a coercive requirement to affirm God." (Breitbart)
