Voices of dissent are harder to find in the growing stack of state-by-state court rulings redefining marriage. Last year, in the very sloppy United States v. Windsor ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court on the one hand said the federal government ought not to impose a marriage definition, but on the other hand told the states they can’t define marriage as they always have. A week ago, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned Virginia’s law defining marriage between one man and one woman. The 2-1 decision followed similar rulings out of Utah and Oklahoma.
