Gay Rights Could Imperil Progressive Reforms

Interesting take on the pending Supreme Court decision over same- sex marriage. Reason magazine takes a look at the reasoning of leftie legal analyst, Jeffrey Rosen. He wonders if a victory over gay marriage might imperil other "progressive" reforms:

" ...In short, Rosen fears, if the Supreme Court places individual dignity and autonomy above government power in this case, ‚Äúprogressive legislation‚ÄĚ could be similarly imperiled in future cases."

Love it how Rosen admits that progressive legislation- at least in economic areas- is often contrary to individual dignity and autonomy. But, yep, things like this can end up working both ways, can't they?
