Washington - The Supreme Court on Monday remained silent about whether it will enter the legal fray over same-sex marriage and agree to hear one of several pending appeals on the issue.

The court’s nine justices met in private on Friday to consider whether to review challenges to the U.S. Defense of Marriage Act, which denies federal benefits to married same-sex couples, and to California’s gay marriage ban, known as Proposition 8.

In an “orders list” issued early on Monday, the court made no mention of any of the same-sex marriage cases. The court could reschedule those cases for further consideration at its weekly conference on Friday. The justices sometimes hold especially complex cases for a future conference if they want more time to figure out a course of action.

Live and let live. No one is asking you to marry someone of the same sex, so why should you care? Let these people live their lives as they see fit, not the way you see fit.

Agreed. Now that the election is over maybe these right wing-nuts will leave well enough alone and focus on really serious issues. DOMA has been ruled unconstitutional by several lower courts and the DOJ has said it will no longer defend the issue. The Court should not be wasting its time on such issues.
