Without comment, the First Circuit Court of Appeal in San Francisco rejected the tortured effort to delay same-sex marriage in California. The aim of the Liberty Counsel suit was to halt SSM until after the November election, which will include a state constitution amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman.
The state's highest court, the Supreme Court, mandated SSM a month ago and it took effect late yesterday.
I'm betting that having many hundreds and maybe thousands of same-sex residents marry in the next five months will help defeat the amendment.
