If there’s one thing that Twitter is good for, it’s allowing folks to vent in 140 characters or less, which offers a modicum of healing power when someone fucks up as badly as the California Supreme Court did today in upholding Prop 8. And since the ruling was announced an hour ago, a lot of the folks we follow on Twitter (and many of whom follow Pajiba) have voiced their opinions. And though politics isn’t our domain, decency and human dignity is. So, to jumpstart your own kvetchery, here’s a sampling of responses to the ruling over on Twitter:

@cruzich: never thought he’d see the day when Iowa was more forward-thinking than California. #prop8 #rejectprop8


@jamesrocchi: So future marriages are illegal but current ones are? Jesus, Star Trek’s plot made more cause-and-effect sense than that.

@lunggwai: Cali S.Ct. holds that a bare majority of its citizens may deny civil rights to minority groups via public referenda. Fail.

@EricDSnider: So if a majority of Californians vote to legalize the hunting of gays for sport, will the Supreme Court uphold that, too?

@heather_in_cb: Fuckery of the day: California allows existing gay marriages to stand however upholds prop 8.

@itzbezzy: shame on you, california. you had a chance to make things right and you failed. gtfo.

@Jeremy_Feist: What. The. Fuck. They actually UPHELD Prop 8? Bullshit. You know what? Everyone come to Canada, we’ll take good care of you.

@FB Orlando Bishop thinks California got it right. Marriage should be between a man and the contestant he hands the final rose.
