More John Roberts Fun To Come! Update: Gay Marriage Legal Everywhere

With yesterday's SCOTUScare ruling, is there going to be any surprise with the other rulings expected shortly?

I doubt it.

The only surprise is it's only a 5-4 decision: Gay Marriage Legal Everywhere  (and yeah, I know he was on the right side of this issue, he is still a tool)

I support same sex marriage, I just hate how it was accomplished. An equal protection argument never made any sense given we know equal protection clauses were never created to accomplish this. The right way to pass same sex marriage is democratically (via legislation or by voter referendum). But it's done. But the damage these decisions will have on other cases remains to be seen.

Roberts sides with the minority here (as many predicted Kennedy is the swing vote). But there seems to be tension between Roberts and Scalia.  No marriage for those two!

Roberts gives this bit of advice (too bad he didn't follow it with his SCOTUScare rulings):
If you are among the many Americans—of whatever sexual orientation—who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today’s decision. Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal. Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.

  1. Roger Taney can move over.

    Just as His Poutiness has replaced Buchanan as worst, so Roberts has replaced Taney.

    I just hope I live long enough to see that smirk wiped off his face.
