The next Act

I suppose this was always going to happen. Foolish to think anything different.

But it's a dangerous game, calling in the courts. Gay marriage advocates ought to be aware of it, since after all the lesson was painfully learned by Oscar Wilde. Sometimes the courts rule against you.

What happens if, sometime in the future, the Supreme Court rules against gay marriage. Would they condemn conservatives who hold that ruling as a litmus test, in a way that liberals would hold Roe vs Wade? Just how do they suppose they would feel if they were denied there. Probably much like the way social conservatives have felt for several decades. Angry and disenfranchised.

Too late to worry about that now.
