Kenneth Starr Joins Prop. H8ers Attacking Same-Sex Marriages

The underwear sniffing zombie is back, now to try and get already existing same-sex marriages in California nullified.
The underwear sniffing zombie is back on the case:

The sponsors of Proposition 8 asked the California Supreme Court on Friday to nullify the marriages of the estimated 18,000 same-sex couples who exchanged vows before voters approved the ballot initiative that outlawed gay unions.

The Yes on 8 campaign filed a brief arguing that because the new law holds that only marriages between a man and a woman are recognized or valid in California, the state can no longer recognize the existing same-sex unions.

"Proposition 8's brevity is matched by its clarity. There are no conditional clauses, exceptions, exemptions or exclusions," reads the brief co-written by Pepperdine University law school dean Kenneth Starr, the former independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton.

The campaign submitted the document in response to three lawsuits seeking to invalidate Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment adopted last month that overruled the court's decision in May that briefly legalized gay marriage in the nation's most populous state.

So much for the sanctity of marriage.

America's Pastor Rick Warren says that being gay is kind of like having a bad tempter or immaturity --- largely a matter of lack of self control. So why should they be allowed to get "gay married" when they can just grow up and be good heteros?
