Supreme Court Hears Gay Marriage Arguments

The Supreme Court will hear arguments today for same-sex marriage in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, states that previously upheld their standing gay marriage bans in an appeals court last November. 


Fox News reports the Court’s decision could set a new precedent for marriage in the nation; the final decision is anticipated in late June. 


According to The Gospel Coalition, same-sex marriage is currently legal in 36 states and the District of Columbia. Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee are included in the 14 remaining states that do not allow gay marriage. 


Ultimately, the Supreme Court justices must determine if the Constitution gives gay and lesbian couples the right to marry. 


Mary Bonauto will argue for the plaintiffs. She told reporters that her clients are "real people who are deeply committed to each other. Yet they are foreclosed from making that commitment simply because of who they are.” 


Opponents of gay marriage remain concerned that the shifting definition of marriage could lead to a slippery slope of legalizing other types of marriage, including polygamy.
