I think we can agree to disagree on this issue. I am what they would have called a "strict constitutionalist". Many judges in this country are getting a little out of control allowing Gay Marriage when it's against the law.

I would simply say that the truly binding law, the Constitution, makes forbidding it illegal, and no Frankfurteresque obsequiousness to legislatures in the name of judicial restraint can change that.

Well, the Equal Protection Clause and the right to privacy, whether found in the Due Process Clauses, the Ninth Amendment, or penumbrae of the Bill of Rights, depending upon your theory.
