The Supreme Court repeatedly has held that the right to marry the person of your choice is a fundamental human right guaranteed by the equal-protection and due-process clauses of the Constitution.” —Perry v Schwarzenegger attorney David Boies, who, as a Christian, disagrees that “same-sex marriages are inconsistent with religious teachings” and notes, as a lawyer, “it is irrelevant” [Philadelphia Inquirer]
