Since Tuesday, the Supreme Court has been engrossed with two landmark marriage equality cases involving California’s controversial Proposition 8, which bans gay marriage in the state, and the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA), which denies federal marriage benefits to married same-sex couples.
As of late last evening it seemed as though the nine Supreme Court justices were unsure about making a sweeping verdict on sweeping verdict on same-sex marriage that would apply on a national basis, but they may specifically strike down Prop 8 when the verdict is expected in June.
In regards to DOMA, it seems as though the majority of the justices are questioning the constitutionality of the law, with one justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, saying it creates “two types of marriage,” with same-sex marriage being likened to “skim milk.”
All the while, celebrities across the nation have been weighing in on the two bills, and recently, pop megastars Beyoncé and Madonna weighed in on the matter with their own words of support for marriage equality.
