Ok, let me get my two cents in hear:
"The state's protracted denial of equal protection cannot be justified simply because such constitutional violation has become traditional," Kramer wrote. "Simply put, same-sex marriage cannot be prohibited solely because California has always done so before."

The entire US court system is built on a system called precedent
prec·e·dent (pr***277;s'***301;-d***601;nt) pronunciation
1. An act or instance that may be used as an example in dealing with subsequent similar instances.
2. Law. A judicial decision that may be used as a standard in subsequent similar cases: a landmark decision that set a legal precedent.

Strange thing for a libertarian to say, huh?
I do think everyone has the right to make choices for themselves, and that no institution, beit church, state or education has the right to limit an individuals freedom. I voted against Ohio's marriage admendment. However, I do think that just because someone has that right doesn't mean that they need to or even should execute upon it.
