    Written By Jonathan Rauch, it was the most balanced article favoring gay/lesbian marriage I have read. It will be interesting to read the letters to the Editor, but the best newspaper in the world just got a bit better.

    Gay marriage is not an issue that the states cannot ignore. The full faith and credit clause of the constitution has to be enforced and I predict that the Supreme Court will uphold it when they address it. Things are just to complicated to ignore it.

    If you look at Supreme Court decisions regarding miscegenation laws, the same standard applies and the history of the Supreme Court decisions regarding miscegenation will apply in exactly the same way.

    So far gay marriage hasn&#8217;t done well just about everywhere it has been voted on in the US with liberals and conservatives alike but then women&#8217;s, minorities & children&#8217;s rights didn&#8217;t either at first. It will not be long now before the courts mandate equal rights again in this case whether the religious freaks from both parties like it or not.

    Not to mention how many displaced orphans and foster children will suddenly have more options and opportunities at a family.
