Justice Anthony Kennedy will decide gay marriage in this country

No, don't believe me. Instead read this editorial appearing in the Los Angeles Times.

It predicts, as many media reports this week also have, that the legality of gay marriage will soon arrive at the doorstep of the U.S. Supreme Court. And when it does, a divided 5-4 opinion will follow.

You can with near certainty expect that Chief Justice John Roberts along with justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia will rule against it, while justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Steven Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elana Kagan will rule in favor of it.

That leaves Justice Kennedy, who, for whatever this is worth, was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Reagan.
