News Flash: A state Supreme Court merely interprets the law, film at 11!

Okay, so I'm being sarcastic. Still, I didn't expect the Oregon Supreme Court to be so...restrained. (link via Drudge)

This solves the issue of gay marriage in Oregon...for now. I don't know if this is because the Oregon Supreme Court respects the legislative process, or if the liberal activist members of the Court stayed their hands to prevent a massive backlash. Perhaps members of the judiciary are beginning to recognize that the public is increasingly fed up with their meddling in controversial issues like gay marriage. Maybe this represents a return to their proper and traditional role in the political system.

Let's hope so.
