    Tim-
    contradicted by 200 million citizens who think the other 100 million are morons. What's your point? Unless in a dictatorship, there's a tabulation of votes by *some* entity. That's how it goes. You'd be up in arms still if it were 8-1, but not at all if it were 5-4 the other way around. Can't take this seriously

    yeah and assisted suicide is legal in all 50 states just cause it's legal in oregon - the supreme court mandated that just as soon as one state did so

    some of the haters here are forgetting/purposefully ignoring that this was a centuries-long struggle

    As we see with Kennedy writing today's opinion on gay marriage and yesterday's opinion on Texas Housing.
    And with only Roberts voting with ACA the first time while both Kennedy and Roberts upheld ACA the 2nd time.

    I'll continue to maintain these two are sick of the stalemate in Congress and will continue to legislate from the bench.
    Both for and against both political parties--as we'll see with rulings next week.

    With the death penalty as an example expected to swing back to the right 5-4--not a mandate.
    At times, Sotomayor has joined Kennedy and Roberts as part of this new "third" wing that is non-partisan and libertarian .
    Agree, but i think it's more like everyone else is sick of congress, and what other recourse is there to solve our problems other than the courts? If congress had done their damn job and upheld their oath, this decision today wouldn't have been necessary.

    The supreme court isn't perfect but i will take them over self-serving politicians and uneducated and uniformed voters any day

    I love how people on the right are bitching about this being a 5-4 victory. I don't remember the same people having a big problem with Citizens United. I can't believe how many people are attacking people being happy over this. What the **** did they expect? People have been working and fighting for this day for 30, 40 years in some cases. They have every right to be happy, and Democrats have every right to be like:

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Yeah, that is generally how it works. The judicial branch has to interpret the Constitution, so they create rules to govern themselves in how they interpret it. Scalia and Roberts did not argue that this was an incorrect or unconstitutional practice, they argued that the justices in the majority incorrectly utilized it or disregarded it entirely.

    Wow, that's an amazingly dumb comment from Alito. I hope there is more to it than that. "Vilifying" others with which we disagree is a cherished American right, and so is dissent. After all the church vilifies gays every day of every week of every year and has for centuries. That's not a problem with him and it's not a problem with me. I can disagree, and I can say they're bigots or idiots or worse (I don't believe that is necessarily true), and we are ALL exercising our rights as Americans.
    i can just see from his oozing compassion that he abhors the previous SCOTUS decisions that denied equal rights to gays, since those rulings "vilified" gays and their supporters.

    Yeah pardon me for not giving a damn that bigots are vilified as they should be, and not believing that some court decision is what will tip the balance of sentiment in either direction. Talk about a bloated ego

    Would you rather they not have that at all? Before you answer that think how those scrutiny rules apply to, and how it might affect your other rights if they weren't there.

    right like SSM is going to have any meaningful impact on birth rate...

    maybe you should blame the 70% who are hetero christians and have stopped breeding, or god forbid, acknowledge that we're overpopulated and there is no way 300 million shar'ia muslims will be added to the voter rolls.
