Saved by the Republicans?

So, next week – on Tuesday – the San Diego City Council will decide whether to sign an amicus brief in a California Supreme Court case to make same-sex marriage legal. The reports out of City Hall’s 10th floor are all over the place. One insider said only Toni Atkins is a sure vote. Others have indicated that they heard about commitments from Scott Peters, Donna Frye and – get this – Jim Madaffer! I haven’t heard anything about where Ben Hueso and Tony Young will end up on this. Conventional wisdom says Districts 4 and 8 are not big Marriage Equality areas, but I think both have enjoyed support from the GLBT community in the past. The most shocking thing I've heard is that Kevin Faulconer could be thing swing vote. Is it true? Might we actually achieve a victory in civil rights thanks to 2 Republican votes?

Even more interesting, how will this play in the Council races for next year. I can’t help but wonder how the various candidates would have voted if they were in office…

Why the hell would Kevin even vote for this!!! What a sellout! Another RINO in San Diego! I can't believe he would give special rights to perverts, what's next is he and Toni gonna welcome pedophiles with open arms to San Diego too?

Yes Hannitized, members of the LGBT community are the same as pedophiles. Good job. I'd like to know what you equated to blacks fighting for equality just 40 years ago.

Dear Hannitized,
You are dirty for thinking about pedophiles. From now on, when I see your name, I'm going to think Unhannitary.
