By all accounts, it was an historic day. And judging by the circus that ensued in the street in front of the Supreme Court as the justices heard oral arguments in the first of two cases it will consider on the legality of same-sex marriage, passions ran high.

When anti-marriage equality forces marched to the Supreme Court, where pro-LGBT activists had already assembled, the stage was set for a confrontation involving a barrage of chants, and a battle of banners and signs.
