"Scalia"

that's the joke

His mere proximity to gay will sway his legal reasoning.

FTFA: I believe he sees where the tide is going

On one hand, it's not a justice's job to be populist. They're supposed to weigh the elements of the case and make a decision based off of their interpretation of the Constitution (and precedent).

On the other hand, only a brain-dead monkey wouldn't see that Prop 8 tramples on people's 1st and 14th amendment rights. What's funny is the NOM people are claiming that gay marriage tramples on THEIR "freedom of religion" rights. Well, what about everyone ELSE'S rights?
 
2013-03-25 08:27:44 AM  
Also, FTFA: While Podrasky said she doesn't know if having a lesbian family member impacts Roberts' thinking, a Pew Research Center poll released last week found 32 percent of those who became supporters of gay marriage after opposing it did so because they knew someone who was gay.

Harvey Milk was right.

right, Scalia.

They probably think gay marriage will invalidate their own marriage.

Is a cousin enough to get a Republican to change their mind about marriage equality, because I thought it usually takes a son or daughter coming out?

It actually says SHE requested the tickets through Roberts' sister and secretary.

If I was in Law school I would be boning up on contracts and marriage/divorce laws.

In a few years there be big money, as the young dudes leave with 1/2 the family money and ancestral estate.

Sure I know it happens all the time with gold diggers and old men.

Just think there will be a whole new set of conditions given the " *infidelities and hook ups among gay men ' and the whole but "we're married and he cheated on me your honor."
Lesbians will just continue to be pissed off regardless.

Think you're Dad was a little disturbed when you came out in HS.

Having your relationship in the hands of the Supreme Court is more than a bit stressful. These next two days are going to be HUGE, and then we will have to likely wait until June to actually hear the outcome. When your entire future is in their hands, that's a bit intense.

They usually claim they are afraid that if you legalize gay marriage then:

A) Churches will be forced to perform weddings for gay couples or face government retribution.
B) Children will be confused how two members of the same sex can be married and teachers and parents will have to explain how gay people have sex with each other to elementary school students.

Both are BS objections though. Churches aren't forced to marry mixed race couples since anti-miscegnation laws are off the books, they won't be forced to perform same sex marriage. Meanwhile, telling kids that a man and a woman are married doesn't mean you have yo explain sex to them, why would same sex marriage require that sort of info? Kids generally blindly accept our social conventions as the way things work, and if you just say "they love each other very much and got married" that will satisfy most kids to the same degree any other answer would.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if marriage equality leads to a reversal of divorces ending with the wife automatically getting half of everything  or completely hosing the husband out of everything he has. Assuming, of course, that the same laws for heterosexual marriages applies to homosexual marriages, that is.

/can't wait to see the responses to your post though.

Strange way of using the word "guest". Apparently, she is his guest, independent of whether he actually invited her or not.

It all goes hand-in-hand with gay people being seen as merely second-class citizens.

In other words, pay no attention to Matthew 22:37-40, "Christians."  No attention at all.

I predict the scale being tipped by at least three votes in favour of gay marriage (6-3 or 7-2).
 
2013-03-25 09:26:06 AM  
I'm handicapping the decision at 6-3 in favor of marriage equality.  Anyone else?
I think C.J. Roberts has a pretty keen sense of the fact that he'll live to see his decision overturned if he votes otherwise and I don't think he wants that to happen.  I'm guessing he might advocate for a more limited, but still positive, ruling.
