  •  Didn't the SC already dismiss a case (1+ / 0-)

    against a ban on gay marriage by a state? They wouldn't even entertain the question.

    What would be bold about repeating that?

    •  You're thinking of Baker v. Nelson (0+ / 0-)

      That was, however, 41 years ago (before Romer and Lawrence, and before several other cases that expanded precedent with regard to marriage in general) and addressed an issue which is not currently before the court).

      Writing in all lower-case letters should be a capital offense

      •  Wiki tells me the two men in B v N (0+ / 0-)

        are still living happily together (well, I'm assuming the 'happy' part) 41 years later.

        You can deny legal recognition of love, but you can't deny the love.
