The Supreme Court today began weighing the meaning of marriage, with several of justices — afflicted with buyer’s remorse — wondering if they just could throw the scale out the window for another day or, better yet, another decade.
The Court was treading more carefully than a platoon of soldiers tip-toeing through a minefield.
Justice Anthony Kennedy — likely the deciding vote — wondered whether the Court should have even heard the challenge to Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage.
Kennedy also warned that it could be too soon to know what the social effects of same-sex marriage might be, saying that “we have five years of information to pose against 2,000 years of history.”
I, for one, am willing to take it fast on gay marriage.
There is a reason why God gave Adam a partner named Eve, not Elmer.
