mileshelvetica saidSuppose the Supreme Court decision goes against marriage equality. What will happen in the states where it is already legal?
Absolutely nothing. It is legal in those states because their legislature, their citizenry through referendum, or their state courts, because of state laws, decided to allow it. SCOTUS could, in the worst case, only say that the federal costituton does not mandate same-sex marriage, or that the federal government cannot be required to recognize it, or make other states require to recognize it.
