    We're going to bend over backwards for "author's intent" when it comes to the sloppy writing in Obamacare, effectively rewriting the bill they voted yes on for them, but we're going to pretend that the people writing and voting for the 14th Amendment not only considered marriage a "right" but that a marriage that would be totally alien to them is also a "right?"

    That's ****ing absurd. This entire line of reasoning is a joke and has been since the first time some liar ever tried it.
    no pretending required. marriage is a fundamental right that cannot be denied due to sexual orientation.

    Dred Scott was just a terrible decision. the fourteenth amendment came after that.

    well, it wasn't hurt by this particular decision. this decision falls under the fourteenth amendment.

    lol you are so full of hate. How bitter and sad. Your girlfriend probably deserves better anyways. She'll wisen up eventually and find a man who's love for her is not contingent on the marital status of strangers.

    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.

    As expected...they did not rule based on Constitution or law. They ruled on emotion and personal opinion.

    C'est la vie. The upside is...people can get on with their merry lives. There will still be many court battles on implementation, but this issue looks settled.
    Try reading the other eighty pages instead of just one sentence.

    I do not give one flying **** how many people vote for an unconstitutional law. Overturning unconstitutional law, even when it's "the will of the people," is exactly what the supreme court is here for. And by the way, a majority of Americans now support same-sex marriage.

    I do love her, but marriage as an institution is pointless. The only reason I would do it anymore is for tax breaks.
