Quick Follow-Up on Doe v. Reed

The Supreme Court's decision in Doe v. Reed, which I blogged about on Friday, continues to receive attention on the blogosphere. Lisa McElroy at SOTUSblog has a good "In Plain English" explanation of the decision, including this passage, which is similar to what I talked about in my post:
One other note: The Court sided with the state here, which some may view as siding with gay marriage proponents. But that’s not it at all. The Court did not express an opinion on gay marriage in and of itself. It merely ruled on the legal issue before it, an important distinction that will come into play even when cases directly implicating gay marriage eventually make their way to the Court.
