    "They have discovered in the Fourteenth Amendment a ‘fundamental right’ overlooked by every person alive at the time of ratification, and almost everyone else in the time since. They see what lesser legal minds—minds like Thomas Cooley, John Marshall Harlan, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., Learned Hand, Louis Brandeis, William Howard Taft, Benjamin Cardozo, Hugo Black, Felix Frankfurter, Robert Jackson, and Henry Friendly—could not."

    That last bit of yours is highly hilarious considering you're the one taking the position that this decision is A-Okay despite the fact that the Chief of the Judicial Branch is telling you it is NOT consistent with the constitution at all.
    Let me put this another way: Even if the constitution flat out stated "same sex is a right in every state," you would STILL be throwing tantrums. Once again, you're not fooling anyone

    Not at all. Legal marriage in the US involves a legal contract, as well as forms a legal kinship. You cannot sign a contract with an inanimate object or with an animal, or even with a minor. You cannot form a legal kinship of any kind with an inanimate object or an animal. None of those things can be claimed, ever on your taxes as a dependent, many legal relatives can, especially your closest legal relative, your spouse.

    That feeling would still be a verifiable sensation, which is objective evidence of an electrical current, as is the ability to measure the current, along with plenty of other things pertaining to the current.

    The Bible is not any sort of objective evidence of God. It is not evidence of any specific thing in the Bible being true.

    LOL......and yet 5 other Justices say otherwise. Sorry dude.....you lose. The Chief Justice doesn't have any more sway/authority than any other Justice.

    You have never demonstrated any ability to read my mind, and in this you show you definitely cannot. If you managed in some fictional universe to add that hot mess of a statement to the constitution, I'd have been all for it. In fact, I'll go a bit further, come up with a textually sound constitutional amendment that allows free and equal access to marriage and I will wholeheartedly support it.

    But until you do, this decision was entirely outside the constitution and is the sign of a system that has abandoned the constitutional model and strayed into social engineering by a robed panel. Star chamber.

    You are probably going to have to wait several election cycles before another Republican makes it into the whitehouse.
