Justices take no action yet on same-sex marriage appeal

Washington (CNN) - The Supreme Court took no action Friday on a pending series of appeals over the divisive issue of same-sex marriage.

The justices had scheduled a closed-door conference to consider whether to accept for review several challenges to federal and state laws restricting the ability of gay and lesbian couples to legally wed.

    This is a no brainer. There's nothing in the US Constitution to prohibit or ban gay marriage. Why else do you think that the right wing is so hot to pass a Marriage Amendment? Because they know it to be true....and now the right wing justices are trying to rationalize some way to make it illegal without legislating from the bench. Stay tuned.

    Rudy – that's why they haven't taken any action – they are trying to figure out how to "rationalize" a way. lol – – They won't have to worry about it within the next 4 yrs – Obama will make sure it (the S C ) will "finally" get tilted, since it's been "tilted" the other way, for so many years.
