More Wingnut Setbacks in California

The Kern County Board of Supervisors has rejected an effort by the poorly named "Campaign for Children and Families" to ban marriage equality for gays and lesbians there. The supervisors decided against the proposal after the county lawyer pointed out that, in fact, the California Supreme Court has authority over the Kern County Board of Supervisors. We're glad he was able to clear up that murky constitutional question for us.

Sanity may have prevailed in this decision, but it doesn't mean Kern County still isn't a screwed up place. As you may recall we talked about the Kern County Clerk's decision that the county would stop officiating all weddings -- gay or straight -- last month on the show.

Let's hope the right stays on this loosing streak right through November and beyond. And make sure to do what you can to help by donating at Equality for All to beat the ballot measure.
