Kitchen Sink: The Ultimate Fate of Utah’s Amendment 3

With the 10th Circuit invalidating Utah’s Amendment 3 forbidding gay marriage in Herbert v. Kitchen, Utah has two options: let it go or keep fighting. Ultimately, while it may be more politically impactful to fight the 10th Circuit’s ruling, the result will be the same: gay marriage will be legal and lawful throughout the United States. This is a battle that was lost in 2003, the moment the Supreme Court invalidated Texas’ anti-sodomy laws with Lawrence v. Texas.
