"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury." Attributed to Alexander Tytler
Nor do you care, evidently, that Obergefell subverts democracy, threatens religious freedom, and makes a mockery of the rule of law. This was nothing but judicial fiat, and as an unconstitutional dictate it deserves no one's respect. Even a homosexual with a modicum of respect for the Constitution and for democracy would condemn this sorry excuse for a decision as arbitrary and undemocratic. The states should remember that there would not even be a Supreme Court, if they had not agreed to create it in the Constitution, and that the Court has no way to enforce any of its decisions. It is THE STATES AND THEIR PEOPLE--and NOT the Supreme Court--who have the final say about what the Constitution means.
Where your entire premise is flawed is in the very basic understanding of the Constitution. The Constitution was created will the principle idea that there are certain fundamental/inalienable rights that are not to be subject to the whim of the majority, i.e., a popular vote. So the Obergefell decision is completely in line with the Constitution (you would know that if you understood how the Constitution works).
And your conclusion is completely wrong again. It is not the "STATES AND THEIR PEOPLE" that have the final say about what the Constitution means.....it actually IS the Supreme Court. The state/people remedy if they disagree with the Supreme Court is to pass a Constitutional Amendment. That is how our system is set up (you might understand that if you understood how the Constitution works).
Anyway the Supreme Court forcing a change in law doesn't mean sociaty has move one ounce on the issue.
