3 Things We Learned from the
Supreme Court Yesterday
by Joseph Backholm
Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments for two-and-a-half hours on two questions.
1. Justice Kennedy may be hesitant to tell all of human history they were wrong about marriage.
That is how proponents of redefining marriage want to convince the justices -- and the public -- to think about marriage. Don't think about future generations, don't think about children, don't think about the implications of the reality that we are a gendered species, just think about what it does to someone when they feel "excluded."
If the Supreme Court finds that marriage is unconstitutional, every state will be required to issue same-sex marriage license.
