      Poll: Supreme Court Rulings

      Poll: Supreme Court Rulings

      Supporters of gay marriage are celebrating two Supreme Court decisions today.

      One struck down a provision of a federal law denying federal benefits to married gay couples. The other cleared the way for the resumption of same-sex marriage in California by leaving in place a trial court's declaration that California's voter-approved ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional.

      The provision of the Defense of Marriage Act that was struck down today kept legally-married same-sex couples from receiving tax, health and pension benefits that go to married couples of the opposite sex.

      In the other ruling, the justices said nothing at all about same-sex marriage itself. But the outcome will probably allow California officials to order the resumption of same-sex weddings in the state in about a month.

      Tonight in the Daily Pulse we're wondering: Do you support the Supreme Court's decisions on same sex marriage? Yes or no? Why or why not?
