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.

Usu­al­ly the court delays the release of audio record­ings of oral argu­ments. But, acknowl­edg­ing the impor­tance of these par­tic­u­lar cas­es, SCOTUS is mak­ing this week’s argu­ments imme­di­ate­ly avail­able. 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”.
