If you haven’t been near a TV with a cable news channel on it over the weekend, then you might have missed that same-sex marriage legislation was passed and signed into law by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo late Friday night.

Although it was hailed by many, the question is what’s next and where does it go from here politically? On Sunday’s “Fox News Sunday,” during the Web-only “Panel Plus” segment, Fox News contributor Brit Hume predicted “a major political collision” between the states that have legalized it and those that haven’t and won’t. (Maher: If Obama doesn’t stop climate change, America will be a third-world country)

“I don’t see how this ends up being anything other than eventually some major political collision between the states that have gone ahead and done this,” Hume said. “I don’t think national popular sentiment supports it although it may be easing on this issue.

I don’t think it’s going to be a major issue in the 2012 election but it is very explosive to the people who oppose it. It is an unthinkable outcome to those who are for it. It is the only course of progress, it’s tolerance itself. It does not seem that you know, these arrangements where people are allowed the same rights but not actual marriage is going to satisfy the gay lobby which very much wants to have marriage between a man and a man, and a woman and a woman, and have the universally recognized.”
