Gay marriage day at the Supreme Court

 |  NCR Today

The Supreme Court has before it now seven cases involving gay rights. The questions before it range from can  married gay veterans be buried together in a military cemetery to whether same-sex couples can once again marry in California.

The court is convening privately today to consider the cases. Deciding to hear or not hear one, some or all of these cases will have significant ramifications on the cause of marriage equality.

Mother Jones has put together a useful guide to the cases and issues involved. Check it out here: The Supreme Court's Big Gay-Marriage Day, Explained
