2. even pondering the alleged novelty suggests he's fomulating policy, i.e., legislating from the bench

should the supreme court have fretted in the immediate aftermath of the civil war about the novelty of black freedom (which also wasn't truly a novelty as the were free blacks, just not many in the slave states)?


fact of the matter is, gay committed coupling is very old, way older than our modern concept of romance.


in any event, bigotry is wrong, and worrying about the "novelty" of it is really the same thing as rationalizing the perpetuation of bigotry on the grounds of tradition. just the other side of the coin.
