From Reuters:

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California's Supreme Court annulled more than 4,000 gay marriages in San Francisco on Thursday, finding that the city acted improperly in granting the marriage licenses earlier this year in defiance of state law.

The mayor of the liberal city ignited a passionate nationwide debate in February by allowing 4,037 same-sex couples to wed over a four-week period before the California high court halted them as it reviewed the city's actions.

A California law backed by a voter referendum defines marriage as a union of man and women, and polls show most Californians continue to oppose gay marriage

Not good. I suppose it'll go to the Supremes, maybe? I'm no legal beagle and my source (Mrs. F.) is in Charlotte (safe and sound by the way). Maybe CA Supreme is the end of the line. I hope there's another avenue for the queers. Love is love, regardless.
