There is a federal challenge to California's prop 8 making its way through the courts.
at the U.S. Supreme court,
“a favorable ruling would allow gays and lesbians to get married in every state,”
just as the court's 1967 ruling in a Virginia case outlawed prohibitions on interracial marriage…..which legalized interracial marriage across the nation.
Is that claim true, false, or unknown?
The impact it would have is:
A. The article’s claim is correct.
Favorable ruling at SCOTUS = Gay marriage nationwide
B. It wouldn’t open the door to legalizing gay marriage.
All it would do is close the door to banning it.
All it would do is strike down every state constitutional ban on it.
C. Depends on what grounds the court bases its decision and how broad its holding is.
Which is it? A? B? or C?
