UPDATE Protect Marriage was Denied! No Challenge to Ninth Circuit's Prop 8 Lift


We just had a good laugh at this.

Protect Marriage deebs are trying to stop the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal from moving up the date for gay marriages to take place.

Yes, these cretins are waisting their time, but it's fun to watch. READ some of their press release:
Today the Proposition 8 legal team filed an emergency petition to U.S. Supreme Court to stop the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal's premature move requiring same-sex "marriage" licenses in California, weeks before the Supreme Court's decision even goes into effect. The petition, prepared overnight, was submitted Saturday to Justice Anthony Kennedy, the associate justice who decides such motions pertaining to the Ninth Circuit. 
When the Ninth Circuit originally put in place its stay to prevent same-sex marriage pending Supreme Court action, it stated clearly that “the stay shall continue until final disposition by the Supreme Court.” Under Supreme Court procedural rules, "final disposition" comes when the Supreme Court issues a "mandate" to the Ninth Circuit, at least 25 days after announcing its opinion in the case. The 25-day waiting period is provided to allow parties such as Prop 8's proponents to petition the Supreme Court for a re-hearing of the case. 
Today's petition asks the Supreme Court to find that the Ninth Circuit had no jurisdiction to order same-sex marriages on Friday, since the case had not yet come back down from the nation's highest court.
They are sooo out of business.

UPDATE: They were denied! SCJ Kennedy rejected their challenge and basically tells them to deal with it.

Best news I've heard all weekend. Now Arizona can go back to being the place where bigoted Californians move to when they're priced out of the housing market.
