SC Justice Sotomayor
A Supreme Court Justice Takes Down An Anti-Gay-Marriage Argument In 1 Minute

in UNITED STATES, 28/03/2013

During a Supreme Court hearing to determine whether Proposition 8 (marriage shall only be between one man and one woman) was constitutional, a number of anti-gay marriage arguments got spectacularly demolished.

Check out this quote from Justice Sotomayor and listen to the exchange below.

Justice Sotomayor: Outsie of the marraige context, can you think of any rational basis, reason, for a state using sexual orientation as a afctor denying homosexuals benefits or imposing burdens on them? is there any other rational decision-making that the government could make? Denying them a job, not grantinmg them benefits of some sort, any other decision? 

Mr. Cooper: Your Honor, I cannot.
