Same-Sex Marriage Debate

I will blog more on this at a later point; I have been telling my students that SCOTUS is set to discuss the legality of same-sex marriage. This is a contentious matter in that many believe the DOMA is unconstitutional. Visit SCOTUS blog here. Thanks to my colleague Mrs. Chilli for keeping me in the know. Goldstein concludes by noting…

But the verdict of history cannot decide the legal questions presented by these cases.  The cases arrive today, in this moment, before our cultural transition has completed.  In a sense, it is a shame that there is such pressure to hear the cases now; the judgment for the rest of the nation’s history would certainly favor these claims.  But if they do decide to grant review, the Justices cannot merely choose to embrace the past or the future.  They will have to make a judgment now.
