Proposition 8 upheld in California 6-1

Today the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8 by a vote of 6-1, thus affirming the constitutional amendment passed in November that defines marriage as only the union of one man and woman.


Mathew D. Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, who argued the case at every stage of the litigation, commented: “The people of California have spoken by affirming traditional marriage. It is time to move on. By a mere fourteen words that reaffirm the historic and common-sense definition of marriage, the people have restored common sense and the rule of law to California. This is a great day for traditional marriage and the family. We have fought this battle in California for nearly 5 years to defend traditional marriage. Today is a day of celebration. Political leaders who say that we should give up the battle on traditional marriage are out of touch with the American people. Our future leaders must be strong advocates of traditional marriage and family.”
