The state of the same-sex marriage amendments

Via How Appealing, this New York Times story on the status of the same-sex marriage referenda around the nation takes the position that proponents have lost some of their energy, but concludes with the note from one conservative that "the low-key tenor of the same-sex marriage debate could change in a thunderclap if a court decision that appears to undermine traditional marriage boundaries is handed down before the election. The New Jersey Supreme Court has a case pending and could issue a decision before Election Day."

Bashman also links to this article in USAToday, which is almost identical, to the point of fishiness.

The consensus in both articles is that the bans will pass everywhere this year, including Tennessee and Virginia.
