Calif. gov.: 'We will maybe undo' Prop 8

SACRAMENTO, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Sunday said "we will ... maybe undo" a measure passed by voters Tuesday stripping same-sex couples of the right to marry.

Proposition 8 amends the state constitution to declare that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." It came in reaction to a state Supreme Court ruling that laws prohibiting same-sex marriage violated the state constitution.

In an appearance Sunday on CNN, Schwarzenegger said the state Supreme Court might overturn Proposition 8, the Los Angeles Times reported. He also said it is likely Proposition 8 will have no effect on the estimated 18,000 same-sex marriages already recorded in California.

"It's unfortunate, obviously, but it's not the end," Schwarzenegger told CNN. "I think that we will again maybe undo that, if the court is willing to do that, and then move forward from there and again lead in that area..."

Problem is the number of liberal Catholics who are either also "gay" or who support gay marriage. Especially politicians. These Catholics have sold out to the values and sophistry of the world and have bartered the eternal kingdom for the momentary pleasures of sexuality. It is very very sad. Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria Schriver (a Kennedy) are both "Catholics" if in name only.

BUT also importantly, it is evident that gay people have no respect for democracy since they intend to use the judiciary, backed by the Governor's office to overturn a constitutional amendment validated by the majority of the electorate of California.

Ah, yes, the infamous scene from "Pumping Iron"-amazing it was never brought up during his campaign or when he was helping KIDS in the White House with physical fitness.

Actually, I'm shocked that the Governor manages to be above the fray while Biden, Pelosi and others are criticized (and rightly so) for their contrary to Catholic teaching views. Schwarzenegger is Catholic too.

Where are the calls to have him refrain from Communion?
