Listen: Oral arguments for and against gay marriage at Supreme Court

This morning the Supreme Court separately heard arguments on two gay marriage questions:
1) Does the 14th Amendment require states to license same-sex marriages?
2) And does it require them to recognize those marriages performed in other states?
Via SCOTUS blog:

Near the end of arguments on the first question, a gay marriage opponent (apparently an elderly man) was escorted, screaming, out of the chamber shortly after Justices Kagan and Breyer demolished a Scalia religious liberty objection regarding the supposed disqualification of anti-gay marriage ministers from officiating any marriages.
