Some brave words:
The verdict will go far to energize and expand opposition to gay rights, at a time when they were on the rise.
The decision may very well lead the Supreme Court to rule in favor of same-sex marriage. If so, it would be the most polarizing decision since Roe v. Wade in 1973, which we are still fighting about.
It would spark a furious backlash from Americans who, whatever their views about homosexuality, think such decisions belong with them and their elected representatives. It could even lead to a constitutional amendment overturning the decision.
When in the history of libertarianism has anyone ever worried about a “furious backlash” over one of their radical ideas? Yet here we have a writer at Reason, when faced with a victory for the liberty of an oppressed minority, curling up in a fetal position and wetting himself because of the remote possibility of a constitutional amendment.
