Two of America’s Largest Newspapers Support Marriage Equality

Today The New York Times and The Washington Post’s editorial board each called on the Supreme Court to strike down Proposition 8 and the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act.

The Washington Post states,

“Now, it seems not only possible but also likely that same-sex marriage will be legal, widespread and, frankly, mundane and that this will happen relatively soon. The Supreme Court must play a part in this civil rights triumph — and justices should not shrink from it.”

And The New York Times wrote,

“[The Supreme Court] should broadly declare that under the Constitution the right to marry applies equally to all couples, period, and that this principle applies to the federal government and every state."
