CT Court Overturns Gay Marriage Ban - one more step
Original post made by SkepticAl, Ventura, on Oct 10, 2008
Opponents of gay marriage can only hope that the US Supreme Court will find a compelling reason to ignore the Constitution's "full faith and credit" provision.
Short of religion and tradition, both of which have a long, failing record as legal arguments, there is no compelling legal reason to ban gay marriage, and the Constitution will prevail, as it should.
Frankly, it should already be the case that because gay marriage is legal in some states, it should be recognized by all. I'm sure it will take longer for the court cases, but the march of progress should be evident to all at this point.
