And, generally not paying attention to the news, the Supreme Court decided to important cases. They declared, using the 14th amendment, that there is a constitutional right to gay marriage. I’ve long supported gay marriage but this seems a bit of a stretch in terms of their actually being a “right to marry” in the first place.
Up next, in a twist of reasoning and a 6-3 vote, they’ve upheld Obamacare (now SCOTUSCare) by saying the law doesn’t mean what it says but it means what people think it means. Or something.
I’m actually surprised at how neither case surprised me. Yeah, you heard me. But in these cases, as with the Bruce Jenner and this Confederate flag non-thing, I find myself more fascinated at the reaction of the culture more than the issues themselves. Everything from the gloating to the people I see on facebook praying for God to overturn the supreme courts. Interesting times.
