Prop 8 is Law

Pasadena, CA

It is great that they took the DOMA and Prop 8 cases. The court will overhold both DOMA and Prop 8, as it should. Game over, Justice Scalia already told you that the gays were barking up the wrong tree.

The Supreme Court will enter the national debate over same-sex marriage. The Court next term will hear a pair of cases challenging state and federal laws that define marriage to include only unions of a man and a woman, The New York Times reports.

The Supreme Court's move comes six months after its 5-4 decision upholding Obamacare, led by Chief Justice John Roberts. Legal and political analysts predicted the same-sex marriage cases could bring a similar outcome - or not.

"Thought experiment: What if Roberts were to preside over a court which upheld Obamacare, potentially struck down anti-same sex marriage laws," tweeted NBC's Mike O'Brien (@mpoindc).

Peter Baker of The New York Times (@peterbakernyt) put it this way on Twitter: "Supr Court to hear 2 gay rights cases, Calif same-sex marriage and DOMA challenge. Guess we know what everyone will be talking about in June".

And Huffington Post's Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) wrote, "Richard Socarides, a prominent LGBT adv, tells me it was 'too important' for these two cases 'to be left for later." I predict a win for Prop 8 and for DOMA.

We have 40 states who recognize mom and dad type marriages, and only a two hands worth of states who are confused. It shoudl be a simple fix. Get them new hands.
