Quote Of The Day: Evan Wolfson

Freedom To Marry‘s Evan Wolfson to Washington Post reporter Jonathan Capehart on why same-sex marriage will prevail at the U.S. Supreme Court:

“The bottom line answer to your question is that while states regulate marriage, they do so under the Constitution. There is a floor below which the states may not go, and that floor is the Constitution’s guarantee of the freedom to marry and equal protection under the law.”

“Loving v. Virginia and other important freedom to marry cases have affirmed both of those guarantees, the very guarantees nearly 60 state and federal courts have invoked in the waves of rulings in favor of the exclusion of gay couples from marriage.”
