Some support same-sex marriage, also support court's decision


The California Supreme Court this morning upheld Proposition 8, the voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage. In response, several callers on KPCC's "AirTalk" said they support same-sex marriage, but they also support the logic of the court's decision. Among them was John of Santa Monica.

John: "The people actually voted on this. And the constitution is supposed to back up the rule of the people. I mean, to complain about a constitutional issue when people vote on it, it just seems redundant – it doesn't seem right."

The court's ruling also maintains the legality of about 18,000 same-sex marriages that took place between an earlier state supreme court decision that allowed them and the November election that endorsed the ban with 52 percent of the vote.
