The article focuses on a New York Court of Appeals decision regarding the ability of the New York legislature to ban homosexual marriage. Public opinion polls by the Pew Research Center suggest that support for gay marriage has increased from 27% in 1996 to 39% in 2006, and enjoys a majority of support from Americans under 30-years-old. It is suggested that court decisions upholding same-sex marriage could hurt the movement by galvanizing opposition.
