Page 3 Calif, judge nixes ban on gay marriage Bush renews call for federal constitutional marriage amendment By EARTHA MELZER San Francisco Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer ruled this week that the state's marriage law discriminates against same-sex couples and is unconstitutional. "It appears that no rational purpose exists for limiting marriage in this state to opposite-sex partners," wrote Kramer in a 27-page opinion that was released Monday He pointed to the overturning of laws that banned inter-racial marriage to argue that forbidding people of different races to marry was unconstitutional even though it was traditional. Tradition and a state interest in promoting procreation, Kramer argued, are not rational reasons to deny same-sex couples the benefits of marriage, which is recognized as a fundamental right. "The ideas that marriage-like rights without marriage is adequate smacks of a concept long rejected by the courts: separate but equal," wrote Kramer, who is a Catholic appointed by Republican Gov. Pete Mara McWilliams and Renee Manqrum, whose 2004 union was voided by the California Supreme Court, rally for marriage rights in San Francisco last summer. (File photo by Noah Berger/AP) Wilson. Gay activist Michael Petrelis reported this week that most of Kramer's political donations have gone to Republicans. President Bush renewed his call for a federal constitutional amendment banning gay marriage at a Wednesday news conference. "Court rulings such as [the ruling in California] strengthen my position." Bush said. "And as a matter of fact, the court rulings are ver ifying why 1 took the position 1 took. And that is. I don't believe judges ought to be deciding this issue... and I think the best way to do so is through the constitutional process." Kramer's opinion applied to several cases that had been consolidated in order to answer their common challenge to the state's marriage law.
