Gay Rights Victories from a Divided US Supreme Court

Hosted by

Two different five-vote Supreme Court majorities made rulings today that advance the cause of same-sex marriage in the United States. The Defense of Marriage Act, which recognizes only heterosexual marriage, was held to be unconstitutional. Same-sex marriage is now legal again in California, because a lower-court ruling against that state's voter-passed ban will be allowed to stand. We hear the legal details and the emotional reaction from both sides, who agree on one thing: traditional marriage is changing fast.
