Regarding “Nationalized gay marriage now inevitable” — I never thought I would ever agree with Charles Krauthammer, but this time he got it right in his June 28 column. It’s about what it says on the Supreme Court building: equal protection under the law.
After Wednesday’s rulings, Attorney David Boies said that when another Proposition 8-type case comes before the Supreme Court on the merits, “marriage equality will be the law throughout this land.” With a clear majority now supporting marriage equality, hopefully it won’t be long.
In 1967, when the Supreme Court struck down the remaining state laws that banned inter-racial marriage, a clear majority did not support ending those bans. It’s too bad this court wasn’t as bold.
