31. That question is on the verge of becoming moot

We've clearly reached a tipping point in the US, same gender marriage is on the way to formally acquiring the same status as so-called traditional marriage, and Anthony Kennedy will be the SCOTUS Justice who finally puts the last nail in the coffin of marriage discrimination. I believe him (and the others in the majority) who warn that this decision is not to be used for the purposes of advancing discrimination.

It may well take a test case to prove that, and it wouldn't surprise me if someone managed to bring one, and the SCOTUS denied certiorari in a situation where the appellate court ruled against a firm or person doing the discrimination.
