AFA bigots lose it over Prop 8 decision

Via Joe My God:

“This is a tyrannical, abusive and utterly unconstitutional display of judicial arrogance. Judge Walker has turned ‘We the People’ into ‘I the Judge.’ It’s inexcusable for him to deprive the citizens of California of their right to govern themselves, and cavalierly trash the will of over seven million voters. This case never should even have entered his courtroom. The federal constitution nowhere establishes marriage policy, which means under the 10th Amendment that issue is reserved for the states.”

Sounds to me like the same excuse used for sending black kids to separate schools, and having different drinking fountains for the different races. If the people are supreme. over the courts, then Brown v Board and Loving v Virginia were wrongly decided. And the religious right needs to drop the canard about “gay is not black.” That isn’t even the issue. They are arguing that courts are not permitted to overrule the people. So were the major civil rights decisions of the 1900s wrongly decided?
