  1. "Scalia meant something different -- and his levity serves to underscore why, for supporters of gay marriage, the protester in the courtroom actually performed a great if unintended favor."

    This struck me in context of our discussions about the anti-gay movement's shift away from blatant anti-gay animus to more subtle arguments about the family and "religious freedom." The fact that this moment was not validated, but rather turned into one of levity, and even ridicule of the protester by Scalia of all people illustrates the extend to which the protester's position no longer holds the same water it did twenty years ago...
