Now that's the Christmas spirit!

A heartwarming holiday tale of tolerance and charity towards others this is not...

From the Associated Press:

The sponsors of Proposition 8 asked the California Supreme Court on Friday to nullify the marriages of the estimated 18,000 same-sex couples who exchanged vows before voters approved the ballot initiative that outlawed gay unions.

The Yes on 8 campaign filed a brief arguing that because the new law holds that only marriages between a man and a woman are recognized or valid in California, the state can no longer recognize the existing same-sex unions. The document reveals for the first time that opponents of same-sex marriage will fight in court to undo those unions that already exist.

Now that's the way to go into the holiday season -- not only manage to get discrimination written into the California Constitution but then also try to strip away the happiness felt by 18,000 couples who married absolutely legally. Ugh.
