    NOTE: The ruling was NOT just that states have to recognize it. The ruling is that it is now LEGAL, being constitutionally protected. It COULD HAVE made the ruling more narrow, but it did not. It went all the way. The matter is now settled. Gay marriage is legal, like interracial marriage is.

    Seems appropriate based on Due Process. I can't see how they could rule any other way.

    Great decision, it is a great day. The nation has evolved, and we are a better country because of it.

    Two people of the same sex being married does not affect or change anyone's life that is not in a same sex marriage.

    If you don't like same sex marriage....don't marry someone of the same sex.

    It doesn't soil my marriage. If it soiled yours I think you got bigger problems than the Supreme Court.

    We haven't been a democracy for quite a while. It has been determined that we are now an oligarchy/plutocracy. Government decisions are no longer made to benefit the people. Instead, they are made to benefit the rich, Wall Street, corporate interests, etc. For some reason your people don't seem to have any problem with that.

    In fact, this decision, which finds favor in the eyes of most Americans, is a rare glimpse of democracy that hasn't been seen in quite a while.

    True.

    Both rulings will bite them in the ass.

    ObamaCare is already so unpopular that it couldn't be mentioned in the 2014 Midterms elections....by the Democrats.

    The Supreme Courts ruling on subsidies put ObamaCare right back in the laps of the Democrats and let the GOP Congress off the hook.

    Let them celebrate. They won't be after the 2016 elections.

    Yeah, the US Constitution is a nasty piece of work isn't it? But the court was exactly right in its decision in DC vs Heller wasn't it.

    You may have won a court case, and the left-leaning folks on this site may support you, but you will NEVER be socially accepted by mainstream America.

    I never had a problem with gays before today, but this is too much. I will not be your friend.

I don't agree with marriage being deemed a right, but contract is and the Marriage License is government issued and recognized contract. The government cannot discriminate. It all goes back to that.

    It's ironic on some level that those people back in the day so disgusted with interracial marriage that they instituted a marriage license actually paved the way for the recognition of same sex marriage. Bigotry can often backfire it seems.
