    It's clear when you read it that the other Justices in dissent, abrogated the formality to the Chief Justice, as his dissent was rooted in procedure and discretion. It was also the longest of the dissents, by design.

    That's my point - same thing happens here. We're well past the time when government has any national interest in promoting marriage through tax and benefit policy. Government should be out of the marriage business. The government should treat all individuals equally regardless of their marital status. If government wasn't in the business of picking winners and losers based on marital status, you wouldn't have had this massive battle over sanctioning same sex marriage.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Employers have a duty to accommodate an employees religion unless said accommodations become too burdensome to the employer. The question is, is an employee refusing to do a required job duty because of religious reasons constitute an undue burden. I would say so.

    Yes, absolutely. Your wishes are purely political purposes, derived in no great fashion from a purely objective view of the Constitution. Democracy can be a vile institution which requires the majority to determine the rights of a minority. Minorities are usually despised by the majorities, thus democracy has often tended to destroy their liberty.

    Civil liberties should not to be determined by the ignorant masses, of which you would be among them.

    Roe v Wade for one, the Commerce Clause for another. It's not a constructionist decision but it isn't the end of the world either.
    The decision is pretty fairly grounded in constitutional law. 14th amendment is clear, marriage, like many rights in the US, is considered a right based on precedent(and trust me, if we stopped having all those rights derived from precedent, you would be unhappy), and from there there is not many options for the court.

    Don't kid yourself. What one Supreme Court has ruled can be overturned by another court in the future - it's happened many times before. When the constitution doesn't seem to bind justices to ruling under the law, then an alternate interpretation can be the "forever" ruling next time around.
