In covering these recent judicial decisions holding that it’s unconstitutional to limit marriage to one man and one woman, the mainstream media have erroneously described the findings as “unanimous.” Reporting on the Virginia decision, the Washington Post said that Judge Wright Allen “joined a so-far unanimous group of federal judges considering a question that Supreme Court justices left unanswered in June” — the question of whether state bans on same-sex marriage are constitutional. The characterization of the decisions as “unanimous” is wrong and seems designed to lead voters to conclude that gay marriage is inevitable. In fact, two federal judges, one in Nevada and one in Hawaii, have ruled that traditional-marriage laws do not violate the Constitution. If we’re keeping score on federal-court rulings on the core question about the constitutional legitimacy of same-sex marriage, it’s 3–2 — hardly a “unanimous” legal landscape.http://www.nationalreview.com/article/371380/judge-wright-allens-wrong-brian-s-brown
