A Mormon family with two wives and nine children, about 1889
The LDS Church has responded to the Prop 8 ruling:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints regrets today’s decision. California voters have twice determined in a general election that marriage should be recognized as only between a man and a woman. We have always had that view.[emphasis mine]
Judge Stephen Reinhardt, one of the court's most liberal judges, wrote in the 2-1 opinion.The Proposition 8 measure "serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples,"
