"So if a couple tried to take advantage of the federal law and was rebuffed, then someone may raise the constitutionality of that statue and argue that under the federal Constitution, it is unconstitutional to discriminate," [former state Supreme Court justice Joseph] Grodin said.

Under another scenario, Grodin said, the issue might jump to the federal level if another state questioned its obligation to recognize same-sex marriages authorized in California or Massachusetts.

"One way or the other, the issue of gay marriage is likely to reach the U.S. Supreme Court," he said.

This is why it's all being done, dontcha think? Gavin Newsom is giving this glorious display of civil disobedience for the same type of reason that Rosa wouldn't give up her seat to a white man. Equal rights, even if it has to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme court.

As a certain *ahem* candidate for the White House is fond of saying: Bring. It. On.

Oh, and the rest of the article, featuring PassTheBuck!Aahhhnold, is here.
