California Attorney General attacks own constitution
Tells court to throw out voter-adopted marriage definition

California Attorney General Jerry Brown, who is responsibile for defending the state's laws and constitution from challenges, is urging the state Supreme Court to toss a voter-approved definition of marriage that now is part of the state constitution.

In a new statement on the dispute over Proposition 8, through which voters in November approved limiting marriage to one man and one woman, Brown said the vote must be "invalidated."

The Supreme Court rejected a stay on Proposition 8, allowing it to remain in effect and preventing more homosexuals from exchanging vows until the case is decided. Approximately 18,000 homosexual "marriages" have taken place since June when the court ruled 4 to 3 to legalize the unions. "The court is playing with fire by threatening to destroy the people's vote on marriage," he said in a statement. "The California Constitution clearly says that the voters have the right to alter the highest law of the land. It's the beauty of the American system of government. The four Supreme Court justices who unconstitutionally invented homosexual 'marriages' – Ron George, Joyce Kennard, Kathryn Werdegar and Carlos Moreno – seem to be ignoring the fact that the people get the last word, not the judges."
