Justice Samuel Alito during today's oral arguments:

Traditional marriage has been around for thousands of years. Same-sex marriage is very new. I think it was first adopted in The Netherlands in 2000. So there isn't a lot of data about its effect."

But now you want us to step in and render a decision based on an assessment of the effects of this institution, which is newer than even cell phones or the Internet? On a question like that, of such fundamental importance, why should it not be left for the people, either acting through initiatives and referendums or through their elected public officials?

sick, sick, sick. mad

Homosexuality has been around as long as sex has been around.
