SCOTUS hearings on gay marriage, political commentary by Brad Bannon

In their first-ever review of same-sex marriage laws, the Supreme Court  heard arguments last week on one of the most politically charged dilemmas of the day, bound with themes of religion, sexuality and social custom.


These cases are heard at a time when opinion polls show surging approval for gay unions and when prominent individuals and groups, such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, have been announcing support for same-sex marriage on a nearly daily basis.

LBN host Scott Drake interviews Democratic political consultant Brad Bannon who says "the marriage dispute offers a classic test of when courts should intervene in social dilemmas that have traditionally been the province of the states."
