We tried to over turn the ruling that the court made legalizing gay marriage here in Massachusetts.
The Bishops even ran a petition drive at the end of Mass each Sunday, to get a referendum on the ballot, to define marriage as between one male and one female, added to our constitution.
When my wife and myself attempted to sign the petition after Mass, we were accosted by a fellow parishioner, who’d daughter is a lesbian. With tears in his eyes, he begged us not to sign the petition, because it discriminated against his daughter.
Rather than get into a squabble in church, we just walked out, and signed the petition later on.
Anyway, our legislators, which are 87% democrat, ignored the petition and never brought the vote to the floor at the constitutional hearing.
Then Gov. Mitt Romney, brought the legislature to court for ignoring the will of the people. The court ruled that the legislature was bound by the state constitution, to bring the ballot question to the floor for a vote. They did and it was defeated.
My guess is, California being every bit as liberal as Massachusetts, will do the same. Ignore the will of the people.
