Maggie Gallagher: SCOTUS treats Prop 8 supporters 'as beggars'

by Jeremy Hooper

She wants her "side" to go back to court:

Reaction to Prop 8 Ruling 6A00D8341C503453Ef017D3D4F5897970C

Posted on June 26, 2013 by Maggie Gallagher

The Supreme Court has just abandoned 7 million voters, giving us no justice and no access to the courts.. The California Supreme Court made it clear that the proponents of Prop 8 are delegated the right to defend the law if state official refuse to do so. But after accepting standing in DOMA because. . .well because it wanted to, the majority of the Supreme Court justices simply punted unable to recognize a clear injustice in kicking out of court people who have devoted thousands of hours to the democratic process –and $3 million to the defense of the law–that the Court today treats as beggars with no interest in the outcome.

The good news is that Judge Walker’s decision has no precedential value. Marriage advocates now must look for a new way to get back in court to overturn his aggressive decision that marriage is rooted in hatred and bigotry, not as we understand it: in the love of husband and wife who can be mother and father to their children.

Right, Maggie. You're the "beggars" in this scenario. Sure. Whatever you say. I'm far too busy celebrating to even care.
