Just a random note "8: The Mormon Proposition" can now be watched instantly on Netflix, and is a pretty interesting documentary.

ooooh the other day i saw malabimba the malicious whore! (i think you had shown me the poster, right?)
it was a bit trashy, a porno horror that wasn't scary at all, but that dealt somehow indirectly with serious themes such as ecclesiastic celibacy being against nature and so on.
some parts were just hilarious, not too bad afterall.

Cool bunnies!


And in the "no big surprise" department,  the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued of stay of Judge Walker's decision to allow same-sex marriages to have begun Wednesday while it considers the constitutionality of the state's gay marriage ban.



9th Circuit's decision coming tomorrow:    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2012/02/06/BA1H1N3MS6.DTL

9th Circuit gave Prop 8 the big bounce:   http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46294255/ns/us_news-life/t/federal-court-rule-calif-ban-gay-marriage/#.TzFwGcjQfi4

 :brave:
It should be pointed out that the 9th Circuit ruled very narrowly that, after California enacted a law
allowing same-sex marriage, the prop-9 amendment specifically and deliberately deprived a specific
group of legal rights without any constitutionally-admissible reason.  If it hadn't been legal before
prop-9, this might not be the case, and the ruling's bearing in cases outside California is very limited.



...also....
While I agree with both the sentiment and the letter of the ruling, I think the courts have to be very
careful in overturning the directly-expressed wishes of the voters.

Supreme Court to meet Nov. 30 to decide whether to hear the challenges to Prop 8 and the Defense Of Marriage Act:   http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/2012/11/13/50945


...I haven't been able to track any links down, but I heard on the radio a few hours ago that if Chief Justice Roberts can't find 4 Justices who think hearing the two cases is worthwhile, he's going to have both cases kicked back down to lower courts. Don't know if that's 4 Justices plus himself, or 4 Justices, period. It sounded like the latter, but...  ???
