Direct from reporters at this morning’s Prop 8 hearing in the Supreme Court, 22 tweets with interpretations of today’s Q&A. The current perception from SCOTUSblog is that prop 8 will not be overturned by the Supreme Court, therefore avoiding a broad ruling by the Court.

Kennedy: children of same-sex couples "want their parents to have full recognition and legal status." #SCOTUS #Prop8Ryan J. Reilly
Scalia: "I take no position on whether it’s harmful or not, but it’s certainly true there is no answer to that scientific question…"Ryan J. Reilly
Scalia: "considerable disagreement" about the "consequences" of same-sex couples raising children. #SCOTUS #Prop8Ryan J. Reilly

Tweet: "Scalia: "considerable disagreement" about the "consequences" of same-sex couples raising children."

Apparently, in THEIR mission to redefine words, conservatives have a new meaning for the word "considerable:"

Considerable (adj.): When we're able to find a single source contradictory to a plethora of findings, even if that source was derived with dirty money and bad science.
