‘They Ask for Equal Dignity in the Eyes of the Law. The Constitution Grants Them That Right.’

To me, that line from Justice Anthony Kennedy’s landmark 5-4 decision today says it all. More:

The nature of injustice is that we may not always see it in our own times. The generations that wrote and ratified the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment did not presume to know the extent of freedom in all of its dimensions, and so they entrusted to future generations a charter protecting the right of all persons to enjoy liberty as we learn its meaning.
