They're wrecking marriage!

Who saw that coming? That's something I think pretty often when I hear about controversial court cases: why don't you hear about them before the rulings come out? (And why are there such notable exceptions?) Anyway, California took the plunge and its Supreme Court judges, not unlike every other day of the year, made a subjective judgment and dressed it up as legally sanctioned. Not that I'm saying that gay marriage isn't guaranteed by the Constitution – just that we should stop pretending like decisions made by the judicial branch are in any way inevitable and impartial.

Anti-gay marriage legal firm spokesman comes out and says it: those fucking liberals are "wrecking marriage"! I wonder: will this drive the conservatives to go the libertarian route and do away with state-sanctioned marriage altogether?
