    Judge's personal life debated after gay ruling - Yahoo! News

    I could care less about this subject.
    I do not have to pick up the tab, for their weddings, so I am on record
    supporting gay marriage.

    Why should I stand in the way of someone's happiness.

    I also do dioubt that if I live to be 115, I will be invited to a gay wedding.

    I do feel that if the judge is gay, he should excuse himself from
    this case.

    I heard that this was one of the reasons they filed in his district so that as chief he could rule on this himself. I think that ultimately this will go to SCOTUS and too much celebration on either side is premature (especially in reading the judge's findings).

    The Judge knew what he was doing, he is now one of the Homosexual Communitys BIGGEST HERO'S

    What was the sexual orientation of justices of the California Supreme Court??

    What is the sexual orientation of the people that led the opposition to this bill??

    In the long run it makes no difference, he is openly gay... and when initially appointed the left felt that he was too conservative for them, and too conservative about gay issues.. Pelosi opposed his appointment.

    I think it is a storyline, just as the initial opposition was one. But the real story are the judge's findings and if they hold up upon review.

    Just another example of the mindset that anybody who isn't a white male Christian must be biased

    Unless the judge had a marriage put in question by prop 8, or had actively sought to get married and been prevented due to prop 8, his being gay is irrelevant

    This is like saying a judge should recuse himself from a case involving corporations and SOX because he owned equities in the public markets.

    So any judge that listens to the radio should recuse himself from any FCC cases.

    So any judge's wife who is active in a Tea Party PAC, should recuse himself from any dealings regarding issues related to that topic????

    Agreed, this decision was a no-win whether you had a gay judge or a straight one making the ruling. Either way somebody was not going to be happy and blame it on the judge's sexual orientation for however they decided, whether justified or not.

    It's all Bush's fault, or as Messiah likes to say "the previous administration"

    Most gay people know plenty of heterosexuals support gay marriage, so I don't think much blame would have been placed on the judge being hetero were things reversed.

    This judge was originally appointed by Reagan on the recommendation of Edwin Meese, and was opposed vociferously by former Sen. Alan Cranston, among others.

    If you don't like it, perhaps you should take it up with the Republicans who fought for his nomination in the first place.
