Marriage is not a case of protection under the law, so disparate treatment of marriage vs same sex unions cannot be a case of unequal protection under the law. Marriages are licenesed, and sometime licenses are not permitted. That kind of governmental activity cannot be undertaken where the law is concerned (you don't license some to be protected from assault, but not others, for instance). This ruling is activism, not jurisprudence, and has no effect.
