Let's not pretend on this one. Ok? We all know what the Supreme Court is going to do here, right? The court is about to make any law upholding traditional marriage illegal. We all know it.
The Supreme Court agreed Friday to resolve the national debate over same-sex marriage once and for all.I love how the news simply reports that 36 states allow gay marriage without saying that a vast majority of those states only have gay marriage because a judge decreed that all laws upholding traditional marriage would be illegal because...they said so.
The justices agreed to consider four cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. They will be consolidated and heard together.
That sets up a schedule under which the court likely will hear oral arguments in April and issue a ruling before its current term ends in late June.
The justices' hands were forced by a split among federal appellate courts, created when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit upheld four states' marriage bans in November. While gays and lesbians can marry in 36 states, most recently including Florida, the practice is banned in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, along with 10 other states.
Hey maybe, just maybe, the court will do the right thing here. Heh. Just kidding.
