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.
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.
Antonin Scalia thinks marriage abridges the freedom of intimacy and expression.
I ****ing love this guy.

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...

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.
