The Ninth Circuit has denied a request from the plaintiffs in the Proposition 8 case to lift the stay on Judge Vaughn R. Walker’s decision striking down Proposition 8 as unconstitutional.

What that means in English: Same-sex marriage will not be allowed until the case is resolved.

Currently, the federal case has been detoured to the California Supreme Court, which has been asked by the Ninth Circuit to decide whether proponents of Proposition 8 — the state initiative that banned same-sex marriage — have legal standing to defend the law in lieu of state officeholders, who declined to do so.

The State Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments on the question of standing for September.

Update 2:03 p.m. Read Scott Shafer’s take at our Proposition 8 blog.

      Ah yes, another Christianist who just can’t stop trying to insert themselves into other people’s personal lives. Jesus would sure be proud you’re preaching such important life and death issues.

      This is a minor setback for freedom, as old ignorance passes away, and the decline of organized religion in western countries increases, you’ll be shown for what you are: completely on the wrong side of history.
