Cautious Optimism - Marriage Equality: A Fundmental Right
Trying to read the tea leaves, especially before oral arguments, is a fool's errand, but I have a feeling that in a 5 to 4 decision to come out this June, SCOTUS will finally bring marriage equality to all 50 states and the various territories/protectorates. I think Justice Kennedy will write the majority opinion reaffirming the decision in Loving v Virginia which held that marriage is a "fundamental right" and that government has no business discriminating against same sex couples.
I am cautiously optimistic that marriage equality will become the law of the land.
