Without the help of so many Republican appointed judicial nominees, we wouldn't be where we are today. Granted, it could be part of some grand GOP ploy to get the public galvanized to support the Federal Marriage Amendment and ban gay marriage, but if I believed that...well, a tiny part of me wonders, just a little bit.
Like many of my fellow homos, I do think legalized same-sex marriage is inevitable-- but it could be in 10 years or 50. It's very hard to say whether American opposition to same-sex marriage is waning or on the rise. Only the future will be able to tell us that.
