FROM THIS EPISODE

The State Supreme Court decided today that discrimination against same-sex marriage creates “second class citizens” and that it will not deprive opposite-sex couples of any rights. Governor Schwarzenegger agrees but the court was split 4 to 3, and today’s ruling will mean political fireworks between now and November.

Main Topic California Supreme Court Overturns Gay Marriage Ban 24 MIN, 48 SEC

Under the state constitution, marriage is a basic civil right for all Californians—gay or heterosexual. Same-sex marriage does not deprive opposite-sex couples of any rights. That's according to the State Supreme Court, in a 4 to 3 ruling written by Chief Justice Ron George. The decision throws out the state's legal ban enacted in 1977 and reaffirmed by the voters eight years ago in Proposition 22.
