Think of it Mike! Thousands of legally married gay people from California are going to come to Michigan! Whatever will you do? Bet that makes Mike break out in a cold sweat, maybe for more reasons than we know...
California's highest court has refused to stay until after the November election its decision legalizing same-sex marriage in the state.
Conservative religious and legal groups had asked the California Supreme Court to stop its order from becoming effective until voters have the chance to weigh in on the issue.
Unfortunately, a ballot measure to ban equal marriage rights will be up for a vote in the state this November. This gives California gays about a four month window to get married, and then they might be overturned - which would create all kinds of fun legal ramifications. Meanwhile, the California economy will get a boost from the economic activity - estimates from a UCLA study predicted $370 million over the next three years, if allowed to stand.
Better hurry and spend that money, and then come say "hi" to Mike. He's looking forward to meeting you.
