Today marks a monumental turning point in our case for equality. AFER’s federal constitutional challenge to Proposition 8 is now entering its final stage. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decided today it will not rehear our case. Now, there are only two things that could happen:

Couples start getting married again in California; or
Our case for marriage equality goes to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Either way, we are on the path to restoring marriage equality in California.

Each and every day that Proposition 8 remains on the books, loving gay and lesbian couples like our plaintiffs, Kris Perry & Sandy Stier and Paul Katami & Jeff Zarrillo, are singled out as “different,” “other,” and “less than,” and their children are forced to endure consequences of state-sanctioned discrimination. Fortunately, this dark mark on California’s Constitution is about to be erased for good.

We are so close to finally getting rid of Prop. 8 forever.

Over and over, the anti-marriage proponents of Proposition 8 have been turned back in their effort to ensure that gay and lesbian Americans remain second-class citizens. Despite two federal courts ruling conclusively that Prop. 8 is unconstitutional, the anti-marriage forces petitioned for an en banc rehearing by a larger, eleven-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit. Today, that request was denied.

Score another point for equality!
