In the video embedded below, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg explained to Bloomberg News that, in spite of certain pockets of resistance, same-sex marriage will be widely accepted throughout the United States.
Should the Supreme Court rule that all same-sex couples in the U.S. have the right to marry, Ginsburg said, “I think it’s doubtful that it wouldn’t be accepted. The change in people’s attitudes on that issue has been enormous.”
She continued, “In recent years, people have said, ‘This is the way I am.’ And others looked around and we discovered it’s our next-door neighbor, we’re very fond of them. Or it’s our child’s best friend, or even our child.”
“I think that as more and more people came out and said, ‘This is who I am,'” Ginsburg said, “the rest of us recognized that ‘they’ are one of us.”
“Of course, we shouldn’t speak much more about this subject,” she concluded, “because one way or another, it will be decided before we leave town in June.”
