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

    We have much more important issues to deal with.
    The left supports it because they support equal rights not because some republicans do not.

    Apparently they argued it is both a fundamental right and a necessity under equality under the law.

    Scalia was...pissed. Not really any other word to describe him. His dissent reads like a rant.

    I'm neither left nor right, but the left supports the decision because that is the position of the left, which has nothing to do with what Republicans think. Republicans decide on their own their positions on various subjects.

    Addiitonaly, there is a group of Republicans called the Log Cabin Republicans. That is a group of GAY Republicans. I assume they support the position that gay marriage should be legal throughout the land.

    It's good that this is finally settled, so we can quit wasting time and energy on it.

    It's plain English, it doesn't need interpretation, and this is ****ing ridiculous to pretend that when the 14th Amendment was ratified that all of a sudden the Constitution was declaring not only marriage to be a right but that marriages that were conceptually entirely alien were also a right. And that this unstated "right," unlike our absolute right to keep and bear arms, should be enforced against the states.

    This is the worst. Thing. A. Supreme Court. Can. Do. It is tyranny.

    Constitutional rights are explicit or not at all. The court creating "rights" out of nothing and worse incorporating them against the states is against everything our republic stands for.

    This ruling along with the prior Obamacare rulings serves as proof that we the people have been bad stewards and we have not kept our republic. It is too far gone.

    Let's see if you're still so arrogant about it in 2016. It's gonna be a rout.

    Antonin Scalia thinks marriage abridges the freedom of intimacy and expression.



    I ****ing love this guy.

Who ever thought that intimacy and spirituality [whatever that means] were freedoms? And if intimacy is, one would think Freedom of Intimacy is abridged rather than expanded by marriage. Ask the nearest hippie. Expression, sure enough, is a freedom, but anyone in a long-lasting marriage will attest that that happy state constricts, rather than expands, what one can prudently say.)

    I'd argue it violates AT LEAST the 10thA.
    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    Figured this was going to happen at some point.



    Well maybe now we can move on and address some issues that are actually important to us all...

    Most people in the country support gay marriage. But even if they didn't, it is not the widespread feelings of people at any given time that dictates our rights. Rightly so.

    Our founding fathers set up the system so that the U.S. Supreme Court is the ultimate, final determiner of the interpretation of our rights under the Constitution. There must be some authority to do so. That was the system.

    I'm sure you approve of it, when you approve of the decision.
