Supreme Court to Weigh on Gay Marriage

The Supreme Court is hearing two cases on gay marriage. One is challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8, a California ban on gay marriage. The other is questioning the legality of the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996, which denies gay couples certain federal benefits.

Although these cases may seem narrow in scope, it could potentially lead to a federal law allowing gay marriage in all states. Opponents claim that the states have the right to decide whether to allow gay marriage or not.

Will the Supreme Court uphold Proposition 8? Should states decide on gay marriage, or should the federal government? I think that since Proposition 8 was passed by popular vote, it should be upheld. What do you think?
