Ruling Continued from page 1A "We are serving the community," Luna said. "We're people, too. ... We're not harming anybody. A lot of people are getting a better idea of what the LGBT community is about." One Prop. 8 proponent, Jeff Taylor of Salinas, said he wasn't surprised by Tuesday's ruling and believes the 9th Circuit Court "is the most liberal court of the entire nation." Taylor ran against U.S. Rep. Sam Farr, D-Carmel, in November 2008, and campaigned in favor of Prop. 8. With the case seemingly heading to the U.S. Supreme Court, he said, he still has hope. "I have faith that our current Supreme Court will properly try this case for what it is," Taylor said. "I have the confidence it would be overturned by the Supreme Court." Taylor said he is not against homosexuals "having rights." He said domestic partnerships in California allow same-sex partners equal rights except for the right to call it a "marriage." "What I was standing for and still am standing for is the protection of marriage the way God intended," he said. Another foe of same-sex marriage is The Rev. Jack Alisea of the Church of The Rock in Salinas. He said he was disappointed with the court's ruling. "We're still in a democracy. It was the people who passed Prop. 8," Alisea said. "The court overruled the vote of the people." In October 2008, Alisea led a parade through Oldtown Salinas
