SCOTUS finds SSM right
Cue the songs of praise...and relief, as the SCOTUS rules five-to-four that same-sex marriage is a right. (Good immediate and obviously prepared NYT coverage here. and some analysis at Yahoo news here.)
[It's getting to be about time to shut down this marriage-equality blog.]
I'll pour through the pro and con decisions.
Meanwhile, let's listen for more absurd claims that anti-gay clerics will be censored, censured and then forced to perform weddings for homosexual couples. That has never been true, will never be and there are Constitutional protections as well as statutes and case law. That has not kept wingers and loons from doing their best Chicken Little. Sigh.
