Oh well....  guess I had the date wrong for supreme court releases.  I'm speculating they will wait until the last possible minute to release their decisions.

Tomorrow is the 2nd to last chance for the Supreme court to release its decisions affecting millions of LGBTI Americans.  I wonder if they will have the courage, moral rectitude, and intelligence, to do the right thing?

Here's an article from Reuters claiming the same sex marriage issue will drag on for many more years.  Sadly, I must agree with both you guys, Daniel and Grinning Cat, that we will see only a partial victory from the Supreme Court on the marriage issues. 

This Reuters article is making the same claim.

Analysis: Top court's gay marriage ruling won't be last word

"GC, it wouldn't surprise me if you are tight."

Daniel, is that a Freudian slip or just bad typing?

Comment by Daniel W on June 13, 2013 at 11:07am

GC, it wouldn't surprise me if you are tight.  We still ahve a long way to go for equality for all, and attitudes continue to be fed by animus.

Comment by Grinning Cat on June 13, 2013 at 9:40am

My guess is that the Supreme Court will wimp out on Prop. 8, and rule narrowly that the anti-equal-marriage advocates had no standing, or else that certiorari was "improvidently granted" ("sorry, we shouldn't have taken the case"). I hope for a broader decision affirming equality, but won't count on it.

The many 5/4 ideological splits in recent times emphasize for me that the nomination of Supreme Court justices is one of the most lasting effects a U.S. president can have. (Thank you, everyone who voted for Reagan and the Bushes -- not!)

Waiting for the US Supreme Court.  Waiting....waiting....waiting....

My guesses - no more than guesses:

Both LGBT rights cases will be split mainly on ideological conservative/liberal lines, 5/4

DOMA will be overthrown on the basis that Congress illegally took away the rights of the states to define marriage.

California Measure 8 will be upheld, on the basis that the state has the right to define marriage.

Anyone have better analysis?  I've seen several articles.  It's like reading the old reports of what Mao would do, or Dong Zhao Ping would do, behind the Bamboo Curtain.

Perhaps the misconception, aided by some porn, that "lesbians" exist only to titillate straight men... that idea should have died a natural death long ago.
