My quick take on Obergefell
Justice Kennedy in the majority opinion in Obergefell stresses the centrality of “marriage” as an institution even while re-defining it beyond recognition. Marriage used to be the central public institution because it was the bridge that united the two halves of the human race, i.e. the sexes. But now that it has been re-defined to mean some vague sexless transcendence, it is really difficult to understand what’s so damned central about it anymore. Justice Kennedy is an idiot.
