The Big Decision

I was not surprised by the Supreme Court’s decision about same-sex marriage. It was what I expected. I was surprised that it was 5-4 instead of 6-3. I was surprised not only by John Roberts’s dissent, but by his strong dissent. He wrote, “Five lawyers have closed the debate and enacted their own vision of marriage as a matter of constitutional law. Stealing this issue from the people will for many cast a cloud over same-sex marriage, making a dramatic social change that much more difficult to accept.”
