    I don't think so at all. In comparison to other groups, I think it's been a relatively quick victory.

    Incorrect. The majority opinion explicitly notes that the first amendment protects religious institutions from being forced to perform, or even to endorse, same sex marriage.

    Tim-
    No. Simple answer. Just as the Loving decision did not automatically make same sex marriage legal (but I do wonder how many who hated that decision asked if it did though).

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    No, you do not. And nobody cares. I mean, do you care whether random strangers recognize your marriage?


    I'm not surprised this was the ruling, but there needed to be some clarification on who must recognize a government sanctioned marriage. What has been the trend is that homosexual relationships get precedence over religious beliefs and that is a dangerous road to travel. We are on the verge of creating classes of people that have elevated rights.
    Homosexual relationships aren't being given precedence over your beliefs. That's absurd. You still have your beliefs. You just expressed them right now. Why would you think your religious freedom includes stopping someone else's marriage?

    And why do they always use the phrase "forced down our throats?"
