Today is the day we are supposed to learn the fate of California's Proposition 8. How California's Supreme Court decides this case will have nationwide implications. The decision is expected to be announced at approximately 10:00 am Pacific Time.

According to the activist website, the court will issue one of the following 3 rulings:
1) Upholding the anti-gay Proposition 8 in full, including invalidating the 18,000+ same-sex marriages that were solemnized before the proposition's passage last November 4th;

2) Upholding Proposition 8's ban on all future same sex marriages, but allowing the 18,000 already conducted to stand; or,

3) Invalidating in its entirety Proposition 8's discriminatory ban on same sex marriage.
Here is hoping that #3 is their choice. All eyes are now on California.
