So, the Court has endorsed homosexuality as a positive moral good in the law, but then limited the rights of those who practice it to do things like adopt children. They should either restrict all of the above or allow anything. On what basis are they deciding these things? The Constitution? The moral law?

In addition, the Scotus blog said that the Court was using the principle of federalism. Clearly, the Court is not applying this evenly since the states’ police powers to regulate the health, safety, welfare, and morals of the people was overturned in the earlier decision. Where is John Marshall?
