What DADT Repeal Means For Marriage

More

by Patrick Appel

Adam Serwer's guess:

DADT repeal, in my view, considerably accelerates the timeline under which same-sex marriage could become legal, both as a legislative matter and as a result of the Prop 8 case currently headed for the Supreme Court. My calculations here are perhaps a bit cynical--I think that when Ted Olson stands before the Supreme Court and rightfully argues that fundamental rights should not be put to a vote, he will be offering Justice Anthony Kennedy an irresistible and historic opportunity to write a ruling that will change American life as we know it--the kind that, from Lawrence to Citizens United, Kennedy seems to really enjoy writing.
