AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

It's law, now! 

Red Heifer --- 5 years ago -

Just the way we thought it would go. It is a big day for justice. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

And Anthony Kennedy again writes the majority decision- 

Red Heifer --- 5 years ago -

somehow, I don't feel my marriage crumbling because of this. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

They may be sorry when the hassle and cost of divorce hits them! 

a889324uu --- 5 years ago -

Yesterday the ACA stands, and today, love wins!!!
Onward, America!! 

Max01 --- 5 years ago -

Sad day for our country.

Wonder what's next? The Feds Forcing Christians(Catholic, Orthodox, Baptist, Lutherans, etc) Muslims and Jews to marry homosexuals by withholding tax exempt status. 

Max01 --- 5 years ago -

Difficult conversations for some homosexual couples in Texas today. No longer can one of the partners use the excuse "I would love to marry you, but we can't get married in Texas, sorry". 

Nightshade --- 5 years ago -

....with liberty and justice for all. 

a889324uu --- 5 years ago -

Max, no one cares what you think.

The SC has ruled your opinion to be completely irrelevant!

We celebrate, despite your tears! Love and progress will always win! 

Red Heifer --- 5 years ago -

This had nothing to do with that. It relates only to state involvement. Big difference under the constitution This is legally the correct decision under the 14th amendment and shouldn't have been an issue 

Red Heifer --- 5 years ago -

....with liberty and justice for all.

bingo. it really isn't that complicated. 

Max01 --- 5 years ago -

Even though the court says homosexuals can marry, in my eyes, as well as million of others, it's fake, and an abomination. Not even equal to that of a man and woman.

Homosexual marriage is like calling Catlyn Jenner a girl. 

The Awe Inspiring JoelleDrees (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

I love love. Today is a win. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

What a horrible decision. This ill concieved decision opens the door for all manner of legalization of perverted relationships.

I would love to see Texas and others states tell the SCOTUS to shove it and not comlpy.

Its a sad day for states rights and this will ignite further division. 

Dr Aborto --- 5 years ago -

There is no more gay marriage. There is only Marriage.

FANCY PANTS --- 5 years ago -

Is this final? Can each state file against this ruling? 

FANCY PANTS --- 5 years ago -

There is no more gay marriage. There is only Marriage.


Not true! It will still be gay marriage and perverted. 

Dr Aborto --- 5 years ago -

Is this final? Can each state file against this ruling?

The states remaining can pout and stomp their feet but this is final. ONLY thing that can change the SCOTUS ruling is a Constitutional Amendment that puts a definition of marriage which won't happen...ever. 

a889324uu --- 5 years ago -

Fancy, it's final. Equality.

Texas can stomp their feet all they want, but MARRIAGE is legal.

The Affordable Care Act is here to stay too. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

Not true! It will still be gay marriage and perverted.

The decision requires states to issue license, not to marry them. ? 

Detonator --- 5 years ago -

Marriage is between a Man and a Woman period.

Does not matter what the damn liberal gay-lesbos say or do. They can marry a pile of cow sh it if hey want to. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

I would love to see Texas refuse. How is the court going to enforce it? 

Dr Aborto --- 5 years ago -

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

They can withhold federal funds, for one thing. 

Red Heifer --- 5 years ago -

Even though the court says homosexuals can marry, in my eyes, as well as million of others, it's fake, and an abomination. Not even equal to that of a man and woman.Homosexual marriage is like calling Catlyn Jenner a girl.

see, that's the thing. I disagree with you, but defend your right to believe it and to live your life according to what you believe. What the court said is that governments cant discriminate with respect to rights and privileges granted by the government. churches don't have to marry anyone they don't want to. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

They can withhold federal funds, for one thing.?

No, the court has no constitutional authority for funding. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

I'm thinking the gov't would involve itself at that point- 

Red Heifer --- 5 years ago -

And this is a victory for the Republican party. How? Because the Republican nominee for president won't have to defend an indefensible position that was a loser for the Republicans. This takes the issue off the table, whether or not the candidate likes the decision. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

I'll bet that question will still be asked of every one of the candidates- 

Red Heifer --- 5 years ago -

And a victory for family values. These people want to get married and have families. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

A victory for libertarians, for sure- 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

And a victory for family values.

Whos family values? 

FANCY PANTS --- 5 years ago -

And a victory for family values. These people want to get married and have families.?

This does not uphold family values in any way. They don't have the right parts to have a natural family. I feel so bad for the poor kids they adopt and screw up. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

This POTUS is such a phoney. He speaks of equality and that evrryone is created equal and that everyone is equal in the eyes of the law, but he refuses to take steps to end affirmitive action and quotas. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

I do agree with that, Emp- 

Max01 --- 5 years ago -

Chief Justice Roberts Disent:

Although the policy arguments for extending marriage to same-sex couples may be compelling, the legal arguments for requiring such an extension are not. The fundamental right to marry does not include a right to make a State change its definition of marriage. And a State?s decision to maintain the meaning of marriage that has persisted in every culture throughout human history can hardly be called irrational. In short, our Constitution does not enact any one theory of marriage. The people of a State are free to expand marriage to include same-sex couples, or to retain the historic definition.

Today, however, the Court takes the extraordinary step of ordering every State to license and recognize same-sex marriage. Many people will rejoice at this decision, and I begrudge none their celebration. But for those who believe in a government of laws, not of men, the majority?s approach is deeply disheartening. Supporters of same-sex marriage have achieved considerable success persuading their fellow citizens?through the democratic process?to adopt their view. That ends today. Five lawyers have closed the debate and enacted their own vision of marriage as a matter of constitutional law. Stealing this issue from the people will for many cast a cloud over same-sex marriage, making a dramatic social change that much more difficult to accept

The majority?s decision is an act of will, not legal judgment. The right it announces has no basis in the Constitution or this Court?s precedent. The majority expressly disclaims judicial ?caution? and omits even a pretense of humility, openly relying on its desire to remake society according to its own ?new insight? into the ?nature of injustice.? Ante, at 11, 23. As a result, the Court invalidates the marriage laws of more than half the States and orders the transformation of a social institution that has formed the basis of human society for millennia, for the Kalahari Bushmen and the Han Chinese, the Carthaginians and the Aztecs. Just who do we think we are? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

At least they preserved the religious liberty side of this.

No one can be forced to marry gay couples if it goes against their religion.

That being said............ Watch for the gay couples to seek out religious conscious entities that marry and seek to get them to marry them. Lawsuits will ensue. 

FANCY PANTS --- 5 years ago -

churches don't have to marry anyone they don't want to.

Just like the baker does not have to bake the cake??? 

Max01 --- 5 years ago -

More from Roberts:

"If you are among the many Americans?of whatever sexual orientation?who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today?s decision. Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal. Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. [b]But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it."
