The Real Question Before the Supreme Court

What is the main question that the Supreme Court is being asked to decide in the same-sex marriage case now before it? If you think it is whether or not homosexuality is an acceptable lifestyle, that’s not it. If you think it’s whether or not gay marriage is good public policy, that’s not it either. No, the only question the Court has to answer is this: Do states have the right to continue to govern themselves with respect to the institution of marriage, or not? In this article from USA Today, you’ll find a nice concise presentation of the factors that ought to go into making such a decision.
