California Proposition 8 upheld

Today the California Supreme Court vetoed same sex marriage. The down side to this is that all current same sex marriages that occurred before Proposition 8 stand. The reasoning's for this are questionable at best.
I can understand the whole that proposition 8 was not worded to be retroactive. But to say that it would cause issues with property rights! Come on, who are we kidding here?

Some may call this a hollow victory because of the remaining "marriages". Considering I thought it would be pretty much thrown out, I think we should be happy, not elated, but happy with this judgment.
