US Supreme Court rules in favour of same-sex marriage

The Supreme Court on Wednesday handed a landmark victory to gay Americans and advocates of same-sex marriage, striking down a key provision of the federal law that defined marriage as between a man and a woman.

So now we can expect equal tax hikes, shitty ObamaCare and we can share the collapse of Socialist Stupidity. Great.

The High Court's equal protection jurisprudence typically applies a different level of constitutional protection to discriminatory laws, known as strict or heightened scrutiny. Other laws are merely evaluated using a "rational basis" test. But Justice Kennedy never even mentions this basic question. He then goes on to make a due process argument under the Fifth Amendment about treating citizens one way under state law and another under federal law. The result is a legal muddle.

The opinion is so confusing that it inspired a highly unusual debate among the dissenters about what it means. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote his own dissent to note that while the majority "goes off course" in overturning Doma, it "is undeniable that its judgment is based on federalism." This would mean Windsor applies only to federal law, and the states are free to continue debating marriage.
