Judge Shelby’s opinion remains a delightful read, primarily for its willingness to take Justice Antonin Scalia at face value. Shelby sprinkles his opinion with Scalia’s doomsday dissents from Lawrenceand Windsor, when the justice famously warned America that the rulings were mere Trojan horses for legalized nationwide same-sex marriage. To Scalia, these predictions were ominous and minatory: Fight back, the justice seemed to be saying, lest the terrible consequence of gay marriage blight our nation from coast to coast.

Today the Rhode Island Senate Republican Caucus announced its support for a bill that would grant marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples, becoming the first unanimous decision by a legislative caucus of either party in the nation to back marriage equality legislation. The State Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to approve the legislation later today.
