GOP Leaders Blast Prop 8 Judge's Ruling

Ad Feedback

A group of Republicans on Capitol Hill are taking a stand for traditional marriage by blasting the federal judge who ruled against California's Proposition 8.

"It simply doesn't get much worse than this: you have a biased judge imposing his personal views contrary to the wishes of the majority of the people of the state," Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, said.

"Until the American people change that Constitution, it's not up to a judge to hold their own constitutional convention every time the court is in session," added Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn.

Those are two of the 15 Republicans speaking out against Judge Vaughn Walker's decision to strike down Prop 8.

Fifty-two percent of California voters had approved the ban on gay marriage.

Lawyers on both sides said they are prepared to fight the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, the American Bar Association is throwing their support behind a resolution that calls on state legislatures to allow same sex marriages.

On Tuesday, the ABA voted to pass the resolution sponsored by the New York State Bar Association.
