The wait is nearly over. The California Supreme Court announced today they will rule on the legal challenge to the same-sex-banning Prop. 8 on Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. It goes without saying (but we'll say it anyways) that, no matter what the outcome, this will be a big day in San Francisco, ground zero of the same-sex marriage debate.
The big question: Can California do what Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Vermont have already done? Can gays get married already?
The usually long, debaucherous holiday weekend will surely be a tense one for many waiting to see if the legal validity of their marriage will upheld or if they'll be able to marry in this state in the near future. Local organizers invite everyone to the California Supreme Court at 400 McAllister Street from 10 to 10:30 a.m. to receive the ruling. If Prop. 8 is upheld, a group of local clergy and congregants will engage in an act of “nonviolent civil disobedience” directly afterward in Civic Center Plaza.
