Rachel Maddow on Yesterday’s Gay Marriage Ruling: ‘It’s Freaking Utah!’ — VIDEO


On last night's show, Rachel Maddow discussed the virulently anti-gay international American evangelists lobbying to pass anti-gay laws in Russia and Uganda, contrasting that with yesterday's federal court ruling striking down Utah's same-sex marriage ban.

2utah"And so the ruling came down surprising everyone by 2:00 in Utah. And by 3:00 people were marrying in that state!...Does this Utah decision today just feel like it's a different decision than all the others because - forgive me - it's freaking Utah! Or is the fact that this is a federal court ruling - does that mean that this is just more than the next step - that this could be a harbinger that anti-gay laws around the country are more done than we thought they were?"

NYU consitutional law professor Kenji Yoshino joins Rachel to discuss the ruling.
