Even as recently as the beginning of this still-young century, it would have been almost unthinkable that same-sex marriage would soon be legal in every American state. But just such a situation now seems more likely than not.


And don’t just take my word for it. Even one of the U.S. Supreme Court’s staunchest opponents of gay marriage seems ready to concede defeat, as we see HERE:


The U.S. Supreme Court’s move on Monday to allow gay marriage to proceed in Alabama is the strongest signal yet that the justices are likely to rule in June that no state can restrict marriage to only heterosexual couples.


Of the nine justices, only two – conservatives Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia – dissented from the court’s refusal to block gay weddings from starting in Alabama. Gay marriage is now legal in 37 states.


Thomas acknowledged in a dissenting opinion that the court’s move to allow gay marriages to go ahead “may well be seen as a signal of the court’s intended resolution” as it considers cases from four other states on whether same-sex marriage bans are permitted under the U.S. Constitution.
