A decade later, same-sex marriage tide has almost completely turned

    Al Jazeera America: “I don’t think they [the district courts] are accurately reading Windsor, so it will be interesting to see what the Supreme Court does,” said Kellie Fiedorek, an attorney specializing in marriage and family at the conservative Christian legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), which is representing court clerks in two of the cases. “The only thing that is inevitable right now is that this issue will be back before the Supreme Court.”

    ADF argues that Windsor invalidated a federal law only, and Fiedorek maintained that the ruling should not apply to state laws.

    If the court were to hold that bans on same-sex marriage violate the Constitution, Fiedorek said, “you’d basically have the Roe v. Wade of marriage.”

    Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSblog: “The four couples, who originally sought only to have both parents’ names entered on birth certificates for children (already born or on the way), later asked the judge to widen his ruling and strike down as written — that is, for all circumstances — the ban against recognizing existing marriages. Turning to that wider issue, Judge Black declared: ‘There can be no circumstance under which this discriminatory classification is constitutional, as it was intended to, and on its face does, stigmatize and disadvantage same-sex couples and their families, denying only to them protected rights to recognition of their marriages and violating the [Constitution's] guarantee of equal protection.’”

Ryan T. Anderson: It’s time to protect religious liberty in the marriage debate

    Ryan T. Anderson at Heritage: “State and federal policy should respect Americans’ ability to live and work in accordance with their beliefs. Even in states where marriage is redefined, government should not coerce individuals and organizations to violate their moral or religious beliefs about marriage. Although Americans are free to live as they choose, no one should demand that government compel others into celebrating their relationship. And Americans should continue to work for laws that reflect the truth about marriage. If marriage is redefined, attempts to marginalize the view of marriage as one man and one woman will only increase.”
