Last week the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality across the entire United States, overturning bans in 14 states. The case was decided 5 votes to 4, with Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito dissenting under an Originalist or traditionalist interpretation of the Constitution. Leslie C. Griffin closely examines each of the dissents, writing that their arguments are not an honest interpretation of the Constitution, but an effort to prevent new groups and minority groups from enjoying the Constitution’s protection.
