    Supreme Court agrees to take on same-sex marriage issue[W:141]

    Supreme Court agrees to take on same-sex marriage issue - CNN.com

    (CNN)The U.S. Supreme Court decided Friday it will tackle the issue of whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry, or whether states are allowed to ban gay marriage.
    In your opinion, how will the SCOTUS rule?

    36 states apparently allow SSM at this current time.

    re: Supreme Court agrees to take on same-sex marriage issue[W:141]

    AS I mentioned in the BN thread on this, there are two questions that will go before the court on this, whether states can ban SSM, and whether states can refuse to recognize SSM performed in other states. This leaves open the possibility of a partial victory for both sides.

    Praying they'll see it as a state's rights issue and vote no.

    The Constitution makes clear marriage is a question for the states so we'll see.

    Look to Judge Kennedy who claims to be a supporter of state's rights.. [and possibly another that wants to “get on the right side of history"]

    If marriage is solely a question for the states, then states would be allowed to prohibit interracial marriage. States do not have the power to strip individuals of constitutionally guaranteed rights, equal protection included.

    So you're going with the loophole option. Which would not be surprising at all.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
    The Constitution doesn't mention marriage

    As I understand it, the SCOTUS will answer two questions. (1) does the 14th Amendment require all states to permit same-sex marriages, and (2) does the Full Faith and Credit Clause require all states to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

    We will see how it goes.
