Mark Wilson/Getty ImagesThe Supreme Court's decision in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the case challenging California's Proposition 8 banning gay marriage, does not address the question of whether gay marriage bans are constitional.
The Hollingsworth decision isn't out yet, but Chief Justice Roberts says the following in his dissent in United States v. Windsor:
