SCOTUS paves the way for legalized same-sex marriage in majority of states

Today, in another great step forward towards equal rights for all, the US Supreme Court decided not to review five same-sex marriage cases, thus upholding lower court rulings allowing same-sex couples to marry Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

According to the Washington Post, "the decision will likely expand same-sex marriages to other states covered by the federal appeals courts that already have ruled that the bans are unconstitutional, including Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, West Virginia, North Carolina[,] and South Carolina. That would bring to 30 the number of states where gays can marry."

This demonstrates that the Supremes can still do some things right.

Fingers crossed in hopes that similar cases yield similar results in the remaining 20 states in my lifetime.
