This is the Supreme Court case most Americans have been waiting for, whether they are for or against gay marriage.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints played a strong role in passing Prop 8 in California and strongly advocated the Defense of Marriage Act.  If the Supreme Court’s decision in June points toward the unconstitutionality of DOMA, and by extension Prop 8, will the Church face greater persecution, maybe even legal persecution, for what many people would see as “discriminatory” behavior?  Would Latter-Day Saint temples be shut down because they don’t allow gay or lesbian men and women inside?  Will an ex-Mormon sue the Church because of their disapproval of gay and lesbian behavior, seen as discriminatory?  What do you think?
