According to ABC 7--who just mercifully brought The View to a screeching halt to inform viewers--the California State Supreme Court struck down the gay marriage ban. So: same-sex marriage is now legal, at least according to the California Supreme Court.

CBS 5 online reports:

The court ruled the state's one man-one woman marriage laws violate the civil rights of same-sex couples. Justices ruled in favor of gay and lesbian couples, the city of San Francisco and two gay rights advocacy groups who filed suits that were consolidated.

And, hopefully, the ruling will stick. right now a "constitutional amendment measure providing that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California has been submitted," and needs signatures to get verified. Also, same-sex marriage is still illegal federally. Read more about today's ruling here.

Anyway, congratulations, homosexuals. Feel free to register here and here and here.
