Jennifer Roback Morse of the NOM-affiliated Ruth Institute appears to have given up in her battle to prevent equality for gay and lesbian couples. In a recent speech, she said, “I’m just gonna go on the record here and forecast, by this time next year, it’ll be over as a legal matter. There will be same-sex, genderless marriage in every state.”
I agree, Jennifer. Glad you’ve finally come to terms with reality. I did a presentation with my friend Dan Ray last week reviewing the recently completed Supreme Court term and at the end we both predicted that the Supreme Court would accept several of the state appeals of lower court rulings overturning their bans on same-sex marriage and at the end of June, 2015, they will issue a ruling overturning all such state laws. As Dan said, this is Kennedy’s legacy and he knows it. This will be what he is remembered for long after he’s dead. The same way Thurgood Marshall is known for helping end official racial discrimination and ushering in the civil rights movement, Justice Anthony Kennedy will be remembered as the justice who brought LGBT equality to America.
