Well, I guess the Supreme Court has decided not to mess with same-sex marriage, but to leave it to the states. Several--I think eight, maybe nine--have approved it. Many more--thirty-something--have laws against it, but the number of states appoving it is the one that's going up. A trend, I think.
It's a trend that conforms to an old prejudice of mine--namely, that there are many things for which you don't need a law.
Want to dye your hair blue? Go ahead. If you don't, don't. Want to eat only vegetables? Or worship according to a religion you invented? Fine. If not, also fine.
When you need a law, I think--trials and punishments and all that--is when what you want to do will hurt someone else--burn down your neighbor's house, shoot him, that kind of thing. Of course we shouldn't be free to act like that.
So I'm for where I think the Court will wind up, guided, it seems from the newspaper reports, by it's supreme authority on this issue, Justice Kennedy. Four liberals, four conservatives, and a Kennedy. Sounds like a decision to me,
