Janie Does It Again!

God, I love this woman. Rev. Jane Spahr, fresh off an acquittal from the Presbyterian supreme court (GAPJC) for marrying same-gender couples (the court ruled her innocence because they weren't really marriages), has performed a same-gender wedding in California. Marriage is now "real" in California for same-gender couples.
Rev. Spahr said: "I pronounced them married under the authority granted me by the state and as a minister of the Presbyterian Church..."
The newspaper went on to say:

Now that gay and lesbian couples can get married in California, a similarly technical ruling won't be possible, said Spahr, who is scheduled to officiate more same-sex weddings this summer.

"Although it is holy and it is a blessing, it is a marriage," she said. "I'm saying to our people who have voice and vote, it is time for you to stand up for what is right."

Did I mention that I love this woman?
