    They should win 9 to 0 as there is no legal basis for a ruling against gay marriage and there is a very compelling Constitutional argument for it.

    Yeah man, Scalia could only dream of clearing the intellectual bar you've set here.

    To the numerous right wing apologists on this thread...I admire your attempts at turd polish. What I appreciate most is that you really believe Scalia is something less than a homophobe right wing whack job. Thanks for the giggles.

    Quotes from our strange justice:

    "The death penalty? Give me a break. It's easy. Abortion? Absolutely easy. Nobody ever thought the Constitution prevented restrictions on abortion. Homosexual sodomy? Come on. For 200 years, it was criminal in every state," Scalia said in October at the American Enterprise Institute, according to The Associated Press.

    I disagree. I have no issue with SSM but it is not a Constitutional issue---just a political one.

    People would like to see that but hardly anyone thinks this is likely.

    I think there are significant questions regarding equal protection.

    I really expect the ruling will be the marriages before the ban are valid and the ban is valid which gives a backhanded first precedence for there to be gay marriage if a state desires. The next step will be a full faith and credit case which DOMA might be if not an enumerated powers decision. I think that is going to be as far as it goes this time around.

    I highly doubt this will be the case. SCOTUS seems hesitant to rule on the situation at all. Given the clear trend of public opinion on the issue, I think they're much more likely to overturn prop 8 than to uphold it.

    In this particular round, DOMA is actually not being challenged on FFC grounds. The current case before the court only overturns section 3, regarding benefits for federal employees in same-sex unions, under equal protection grounds I think.

    The nice thing is these two cases put the conservatives on the bench in a bind. If they want to argue for Prop 8 and against federal constitutional preemption, then they will have trouble upholding DOMA and its federal intervention in state law. They can't have it both ways, though of course Scalia and Thomas are total hacks and don't seem to care about coherency in their opinions, just their political agenda.

    It's problematic to assume the justices will use public opinion at all in their decision. If they made a habit of that corporations would have never had personhood nor would the Obamacare fine for not buying health insurance stood the test.
