This decision today just zaps whatever there was about marriage that was pure or worth pursuing anyway....because there is no logical reason for a well off man to marry, the only reason would have been emotional or traditional. Well, now those reasons are finito as well
    Finally. Now, THAT makes sense. Although, I do consider myself a "happily married man," I do so highly recommend that if one could avoid marriage altogether, they should. Hey, I even think the bible says something to that effect.

    I didn't read it, but do you think that is what the decision demands? I mean I'm a supporter of SS marriage, but I don't think that religious institutions should be forced to marry if they don't want to.

    The states really did not present a compelling interest, and he did consider their arguments. He just rejected them as compelling.

    I am probably one of those who knows more about the legal issues than almost any one on the board. I have studied the issues in some depth. How about making an argument and I will get back to you.

    I support the ruling, but in its wake I hope the religious are not repressed, oppressed or attacked. I hope that religious freedoms prevail when it comes to those not wanting to recognize or provide services to homosexuals weddings

    Especially not if you are legally wed in one state and another state says, well, not here. Here you have no rights based on your legal marriage. It gives all the protection same sex parents need for making important life decisions like insurance, adoption, making medical decisions for your significant other, etc. etc. etc.

    It is ridiculous that it has taken this long for marriage inequality to finally get the boot. First it was whites only, then it was whites and colored, then it was just 1 man and 1 woman and now it is 2 people regardless of gender.
    If his own campaign does not trust him with a twitter account, how can anyone trust Donald Trump with the nuclear codes?

    We haven't seen any and it isn't likely to happen anytime soon. This issue is just way too out there, especially since you can get someone to get ordained for free for your specific wedding with little effort, and the government provides the service as well. Now, I can see lawsuits if the JoPs refuse, or worse, are allowed to refuse by law, as some states are trying to do. But that is different because they are being paid by the state to do this.
