Listen to Supreme Court Arguments on Prop 8 and DOMA Online

ernieThis week, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments about gay rights in America. And, no matter how the court decides, these cases will enter the history books. Will the court lead the nation in making equality available for all, as it did during the civil rights era? Or will the nation be forced to lead the court into modernity during the years ahead? That we will soon find out.

You can listen to the debates over Prop. 8 here or below. DOMA arguments will appear here. And it’s also now below.

    Isn’t the appropriate question regarding these two pieces of legislation: Will the Supreme Court find them to violate the Constitution? It is surely not the business of nine unelected Justices to “lead the nation”.
