For John, BLUF: Today the US Supreme Court meets on Same Sex Marriage. Nothing to see here; just move along.
One of my sources for blogging ideas is Law Professor Ann Althouse, who teaches out in Madison, Wisconsin. She has had a couple of interesting posts up in the last 24 hours on Same Sex Marriage (SSM), which I will link to below:
- "Ann, if you're correct and gay marriage is inevitable it might be more profitable to ask of gay marriage proponents 'How do you want to win?'" The flip side of this is the question "How do you want to lose?" The professor says she wants to win in the US Supreme Court. Go to the link to see why.
- "There’s no way of knowing what combination of these singular features of marriage confers which of its demonstrated advantages, culturally and psychologically." This is in response to an article by Andrew Ferguson, in The Weekly Standard. This is a look at the chicken and egg question of if marriage begat government or government begat marriage or if it really is a Sacrament instituted by God. More important, what are the implications of the answer.
- Lastly is a post on Ms Jean Podrasky, a cousin of Chief Justice John Roberts, and a Lesbian, who says: "He is a smart man... He is a good man. I believe he sees where the tide is going." "I do trust him. I absolutely trust that he will go in a good direction." She will be there today for the SCOTUS Session.
Will the world be the same after? Will the world be the same after the decision is released? And what do we mean by "the same"?
