Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is often referred to as the swing vote on the Supreme Court, said during the hearing on Prop 8 that he’s worried about the children when it comes to the issue of gay marriage. But not in the way you might think.
Despite several studies indicating that the children of homosexual parents don’t fare as well as children of heterosexual couples, Kennedy didn’t seem to be taking that into account.
Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court’s conservative-leaning swing vote and the author of two major decisions in favor of gay rights, appeared to be on the fence in the controversial case. Early in the arguments, he suggested that the estimated 40,000 children being raised by same-sex couples in California might be harmed by their parents’ inability to wed. “They want their parents to have full recognition and full status,” Kennedy said, saying he worries about the “voice of the children” in the case.
My goodness, what leftist utopian legislation will ever be accomplished again without blaming the children?
The only good news is that Kennedy also did pose a question about the legal standing of those bringing the case against Prop 8.
Nobody has any clue whatsoever what the court will do. But the court has been pretty darn fickle and not all that into that whole Constitution thingie so my hopes aren’t high. But don’t worry, it’ll be for the children so what could possibly go wrong?
