    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.

    But what about the forced marriages to horses, the mandatory raping of babies and the institutionalized cannibalization of Pentecostals that is surely right around the corner, J.J.??

    Fantastic news, but I would like to read the actual decision. I was concerned about how the ruling would handle who gets to decide the question on defining marriage, and I suspect the dissent centers around State's rights for what the Constitution does not grant in power to the Federal Level.

    Once the court announced it would hear this, the decision was a foregone conclusion.

    equal protection clause. good decision. no state should be allowed to deny a fundamental right based on sexual orientation.

    I think the left supports the decision because they're under the impression that all Conservatives oppose Gay marriage.

    I don't really care one way or the other.

    We have much more important issues to deal with.

    This is a bad week for America and Americans. The moral fabric of the USA is coming apart at the seams. The SCOTUS has just redefined "marriage". The Red Diaper Doper babies are succeeding in taking down America from the inside without even firing a shot. Just as Krustev promised a half century ago.

    The Constitution says nothing about this topic.
    I think you don't understand the Constitution. It ennumerates our rights in general, but does not rule on specific real life situations and how they may apply to our rights. The founding fathers set up the court system to "interpret" the Constitutional protections, as they apply to real life situations. Real life situations would be so numerous and varied that there could never be a list of them all, not to mention that some situations in the future could not have been foreseen by our founding fathers.

    So...the three branches of govt were set up to deal with real life situations. The U.S. S.Ct. being the ultimate and final determiner of the interpretation of the Constitution.

    And so said our founding fathers.

    The fundamental liberties protected by the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause extend to certain personal choices central to individual dignity and autonomy, including intimate choices defining personal identity and beliefs. See, e.g., Eisenstadt v. Baird, 405 U. S. 438, 453; Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U. S. 479, 484–486. Courts must exercise reasoned judgment in identifying interests of the person so fundamental that the State must accord themits respect. History and tradition guide and discipline the inquirybut do not set its outer boundaries. When new insight reveals discord between the Constitution’s central protections and a received legal stricture, a claim to liberty must be addressed.
    So does this mean that polygamy is now legal too?
