Supreme Court to Decide Same-Sex Marriage Issues

HUGE news from the trenches of human rights warfare:

This afternoon Bloomberg reported that, for the first time, the Unites States Supreme Court will address issues pertaining to same-sex marriage.

SCOTUS will take issues related to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s same-sex marriage, which has seemed like a yo-yo the way it has been illegal, legal, illegal, quasi-legal, etc.

Courts that have ordered same-sex marriage in their states have done so pursuant to the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution. State constitutional amendments that conflict with the US Constitution are unenforceable, so if the Supremes decide that the Equal Protection Clause applies, all those states with marriage bans based on gender will be forced to comply.

When this happened with racial integration of public schools, the National Guard had to be called out. Let’s hope that the American people are more willing to embrace change nearly sixty years after the Central High crisis.
