Yet the decision is still a major victory for LGBT rights. Same-sex marriage is absolutely necessary for our country to fulfill its constitutional promises of equal protection and due process of law. Yet there were good reasons for the Court to hold off on deciding the marriage question this term.

Few pundits think that the justices will legalize gay marriage across the board, if for no other reason than the Court's anxiousness over a potential backlash from the public. I believe these fears the justices may hold are misguided.

If the Court rules to legalize gay marriage in all 50 states, we won't see the beginning of some nasty national debate. We'll see the end of one.
