The Supreme Court will take up California's ban on same-sex marriage, a case that could give the justices the chance to rule on whether gay Americans have the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals.

Get ready for more cultural destruction.
We already know how Sotomayor and Kagan will vote.
Prediction: SCOTUS will sell-out America again. Gay will become the law of the land.
I fully expect that the POTUS will declare both DOMA and prop 8 unconstitutional and that homosexual marriage will be the law of the land with all states forced to recognize homosexual marriage as equal to heterosexual marriage
this will also make same sex spouses eligible for benefits of federally employed spouses...including the military
ladies and gentleman the financial benefits have been the goal all along
5-4 with Roberts ruling with the Liberal Justices in support of gay marriage. He’ll find a rationale under the governments authority to tax.
Considering this issue could made Chief Justice Roberts uncomfortable at DC parties, we know how he will be ruling or “helping out” the arguments.
Well, at least we’ll have the gay issues put to bed, so to speak. We’ll know if the people actually have the right to decide what laws they will live under or if the law will be what the aristocrats and oligarchs decide it will be and nothing else, the people’s opinons as expressed through referenda or their legislatures notwithstanding.
I wouldn’t be shocked at all if they pass fruitcake marriage and make it legal. Nothing the Supreme Court does surprises me anymore. After Roberts showed what a douche bag he is nothing they do would shock me
Oh, he'll go much further than that. He'll have the "Justice" department sue companies for discrimination if they don't hire "enough" gay people.
I guess we can count of Roberts saying it will be a grand idea that homos marry.
They are entitled to "live together" as homos....being the same right shared by unmarried heteros. That's where the equality lies and the only logic I can see.
Marriage is man and woman.
Roberts will not matter because Kennedy on this issue with vote with the liberal justices. Kennedy will be the fifth vote.
“We already know how Sotomayor and Kagan will vote.”
We also know how Roberts will vote.
All three should recuse themselves from judging this case.
“It’s possible Kennedy or Roberts will join, but I have zero confidence that we’ll get both of ‘em.”
Actually, we probably lose both of them.
Roberts did pro bono work on the Roemer homosexual marriage case.
Kennedy wrote the despicable Lawrence v. Texas decision—enshrining a sacred constitutional right of sodomy.
IIRC, 7 of the Justices are Catholic.
My prediction: (1) Proposition 8 will be upheld, 5-4, with both Roberts and Kennedy in the majority (i.e., no constitutional right to gay marriage), but (2) DOMA will be held unconstitutional, also by a 5-4 vote (Kennedy in the majority, Roberts dissenting) on the ground that the federal government must recognize as legally married any couple who are legally married under the laws of their home state. Kennedy will justify his switch by saying the DOMA case presents a states-rights issue.
