    Let them celebrate. They won't be after the 2016 elections.
    Oh wise oracle. Who do you think of the republican candidates has a snowball's chance in hell of getting into the whitehouse?

    Why do you state this. Churches have never had to marry any couple that walked in the door. They have never been forced nor should they to marry anyone they do not want. I have known Catholic couple who refused the Sacrament of Matrimony because they refused to agree they would have children. The church refused the couple walked away. No grounds for a lawsuit sorry no lawsuits for the churches because they refuse to marry same sex couples.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    I know! Just like how all those interracial couples sued church after church when there were churches that refused to marry interracial couples after those bans were ruled unconstitutional! Exactly like that!

    sure it will be. pastors are considered authority of the state when performing a marriage ceremony. they could be sued for not marrying a homosexual couple.
    many church allow various people in the public to use their buildings for certain things from weddings to bake sales.

    this will all go by the way side since offering it to the public puts them at risk for lawsuits.
    they can get a marriage license but a ceremony has to be performed by the justice of the peace or a pastor.

    no religious freedom is very much in danger after this ruling, and since the court failed to up hold religious liberties this time they will not uphold it next time.

    interracial couples were not as militant as these gay activists are. they are much more sue happy than the before.
    they will not hesitate to file a lawsuit against a pastor or a church citing discrimination for not allowing them to marry but allowing other couples to.

    Libertarians might allow states to have more power than the federal government, but state rights are more of something conservatives focus on. And no, I didn't bother reading any justices opinion as I don't care what they think.

    this one was pretty cut and dry to me: the state has no compelling basis to deny a marriage certificate based on the gender of the applicants

    a religious wedding ceremony? well the state can't compel the clergyman to perform such a ceremony if it is against their religion. but all we are talking about is the marriage contract - you know, the thing that you have to get from the state even if you are getting married in a church. two men/two women should still be entitled to all the tax breaks and whatnot that marriage entails. too often i see it conflated where some seem to think that the state granting a marriage license is the same as infringing on a religion. you and your religion can still disagree.



    still can't understand roberts' ruling from the day before though; where if congress' intentions are noble then the law can change retroactively to support a good cause... but agree on this one

    Heterosexual couples can't sue a church for not marrying them. Same sex couples will not be able to sue either. No lawsuits here sorry. Churches need not marry anyone for whatever reason.

    That isn't a remotely accurate portrayal of that decision.
