Gay Marriage Ruling Expected: Issue will eventually wind up at the Supreme Court

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is expected to rule soon on the legality of California’s current ban of gay marriage, which was put into place after the successful passing of Proposition 8 by voters in 2008. Regardless of who wins this ruling, both sides have said they will appeal to the Supreme Court if they wind up on the losing end.

This highlights the social divide in America today over the issue of marriage, with the two sides deeply entrenched on their respective sides.

Proponents of traditional marriage view gay marriage as an assault of the institution of marriage, which was created by God, and fear it will result in further social engineering of public institutions, specifically within schools. In fact, many public schools today teach about homosexuality to children as young as five, and parents dislike the government preaching morality to their children, especially when it contradicts their religious beliefs.

Opponents of traditional marriage claim gender should not play a role in marriage and are working to provide “marriage equality” for all, regardless of sexual orientation. Movements across the country are underway to redefine marriage and the issues will not likely go away, but only become more salient of a topic.
