Todays #SCOTUS ruling is rough for #Gays in #Texas. It's now up to same socially conservative 5th circuit that just upheld #abortion rules.

#SCOTUS passing up on a gay marriage ruling. Gov't doesn't have power to regulate marriage under EPC & DPC. Make that ruling & we move on

And this is something to watch for. What’s in the missing pages?

20-odd pages inexplicably missing from #scotus order list this morning, including pages with REJECTION OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE APPEALS
