Lets see if SCOTUS upholds anti-discrimination in contracts.

Thats what gay marriage really is. Its contract law.

You cannot discriminate in contract law.

Who's going to take Bryan Fischer for the team?

Benedict Cumberbatch is mine (I called it), just so I can give him to my wife as a gift on the side.

As for the other rulings such as the voting rights act, I do hope they keep it.

Many people died getting that law passed.

The teeth could probably be taken out of it, but to toss the whole law would be such a great loss to our cultural history.
 
2013-06-20 09:41:56 AM
Oh, and are these rulings really going to happen at 10:00 AM EST? And if so, will it include DOMA, or just the prop 8 decision? I'm getting nervous waiting for the SCOTUS to rule on these issues.

No telling until they release it.  The Doma ruling is expected any day, but it could be tomorrow or next week.

Motherfarker dont be

SCOTUS will come down on the right side and invalidate Prop 8.

DOMA might be a bit more of a pickle. I still wouldnt worry about it.

What happens is not always permanent. Even with a ruling against you the fight wont be over.

You have people on your side who will fight to make sure that you are granted the same rights as the rest of us.
