equal not marriage

27 March 2013

Justice Scalia asks if the issue(s) before the court is about changing the definition of marriage. I think he has the right thought, but about the wrong word.

For me, the real question is are we going to change the definition of equal. I’m pretty sure that there isn’t anything about marriage in the Constitution, though equality is central. How many kinds of equal do we want to have? Is marriage a special right applied to only some couples?
