    Nah I was already leaning that way anyway...the Supreme Court decision isn't exactly a surprise. The courts will always side with the left

    No we didn't. You can still get married. Your relationship still holds the same meaning to you, I hope.

    The Majority...nay a SIGNIFICANT MAJORITY...supports same sex marriage. So, guess what? Your 350 million is more like 125 million.

    You'll get there eventually, if you're lucky.

    You do NOT have my permission to use my post as a signature, and to do so would violate forum rules.

    You don't "own" marriage.

    Depends on state laws. If you open a flower shop and refuse to participate in an interracial wedding or interfaith wedding or Jewish wedding or atheist wedding, are you going to be prosecuted for doing so? Why is it okay for you to face punishment for refusing to participate in those other weddings but not for a same sex wedding?

    Again, I already told you this, but I will say it again. The majority opinion in this case EXPLICITLY carves out an exception for religious institutions under First Amendment grounds.

    Please cite the exact passage in the Constitution where marriage is listed as a right. If you can't (and you can't) you're wrong.

    Dred Scott was just a terrible decision. the fourteenth amendment came after that.
    Setting aside the fact that I obviously don't like slavery and do think freedom of contract is important such that I don't really care if seventeen folks want to get "married," regardless of who's having sex with whom...

    On the level of what it does regarding the Constitution, this is no different from and no better than Dred Scott.

    My relationship does, the idea of that marriage certificate does not
