I am sure the coming weeks will deliver many reports of the ugliness that is happening in this cultural shift. Those abusing the power of their positions as elected and appointed officials may claim moral high ground, but I expect they will quickly learn they are in the wrong profession.

Today, June 26, 2015, a day that will live in infamy, the Supreme Court has just destroyed the great battleship of marriage. Sent a kamizake pilot right through its bridge. Blown it to smithereens.

What the Supreme Court did not do today was offer LGBT people heightened protection for their status in other circumstances, as it has done with race and gender. That victory remains for another day. Whatever happens later, however, history will remember Justice Kennedy's words, and his role as a key proponent for the rights of the LGBT community.

For political wonks, June is not the month to celebrate grads, dads, and brides, but instead the biggest SCOTUS month of the year. This year, the biggest two (or the two with the biggest political overtones, at any rate) will likely be held back until the very end of the month.

During oral argument, the justices aren't interested in educating the citizenry. The questions and comments fly quickly -- and usually right over most people's heads. To help out, here are five things to look for in Tuesday's oral argument.

A Word to Justice Kennedy: In Obamacare Lawsuit, "Congress Can Fix It" Can Cut Either Way

Paul Abrams | Posted 06.08.2015 | Politics
Paul Abrams

The "Congress-can-fix-it" argument is not dispositive one way or the other. If the justices want to overturn the IRS' interpretation, there is no greater weight to the "Congress-can-fix-it" argument for that proposition than for the Court to uphold the IRS interpretation .

Sen. Cruz's "State Marriage Defense Act" is unlikely to become law anytime soon. Yet it is a good example of the kind of chaotic reaction the U.S. Supreme Court eventually could unleash if it upheld anti-gay state marriage laws in the case it will hear later this term.
