    The church isn't supposed to follow the ways of the world. it is supposed to stay separate from the world.
    any church that does so violates biblical scriptures.

    Equal protection under the 'law'. They changed the 'law' of 14 states.

    There is a difference between changes in society to accepting same sex couples/marriages, and changes within the laws to doing so. Society is allowed to maintain bias, the law should not, at least not without some state interest furthered in doing so. Waiting longer for this is hurting people, their families. The bans themselves do not do anything but maintain unfair treatment of people based on their relationship choices that certain others don't approve of within the law.

    You don't get to determine how others interpret the scriptures or decide how their religion should work. That is for them to decide, part of freedom of religion.

    you will see pastors and churches sued for not allowing gay weddings. you will see other religious organizations sued for standing up for their beliefs.

    What they should have done, and what many scholars (Otherwise known as equally qualified to sit on the bench) thought they would do, including me, was, send this back to the states or to the Federal legislative branch for consideration. Roberts himself mocked Ginsberg quoting her just three year earlier citing her point that domestic relations are uniquely the sole property of the States.. Well, yeah but that was three ago, She has so evolved since then.

    I probably wouldn't WANT to fight it if I thought this would be the end of it and the gay groups would now just go live their lives and stop calling me names. but it won't happen. a year from now we will STILL be arguing about how unfair the rest of the country is toward gay people for one reason or another. you watch. it will NEVER end.
