    I'm pretty sure this is not the only case in Supreme court history with a final decision so split down the middle and I'm sure there were dissents from both sides claiming the decision had nothing to do with the constitution and what it decrees.

    It boils down to a fundamental disagreement on the interpratiation but one of the interpretations had to be decided on. It didn't work out in those four justices favor.
    I understand that, but I'm here not so much in disagreement about SSM as I as much as I hate to say it, also see the writing on the wall. My issue is with the interpretations of the majority and how they got there, and civil debate on these points is exactly the kind of stuff DP was created for.

    That is an incredibly ironic and untenable position...especially when you consider that there are what? Some eighteen different translations of the Bible for the Modern English language, alone? Bible Versions and Types - Word for Word (Literal), Thought for Thought, and Paraphrase

    And this is not even close to coming to the innumberable amount of Biblical translations for the other languages.

    5 lawyers just changes the definition of marriage. you can dodge that obvious fact all you want. It happened. That does not mean it is right, it's just what happened. and the liberals vote in a sheep-like block on all this issues anyway. \
    they ignored the words in the constitution in the Obamacare ruling, yet today they are defend it, is that your warped theory?

    It doesn't matter if you're talking about Dred Scott, Roe, or this newest abomination.


    Maintaining the integrity of the Constitution is their job. When they not only fail to do that, but they directly violate the Constitution themselves and make up new "rights" willy nilly and force them against the states appropriate of nothing, that is tyranny.

    When the foxes rule the henhouse, it's game over.
    Except that this ruling did not make up any new rights. Marriage has been considered a right by the courts for decades in, I believe it was, 3 other separate court decisions. Loving v Virginia being one of them.

    God rules, not ungodly men.

    "Supreme Court Justices, can you judge the ways of God? Can you, with manmade verdicts, overrule the eternal laws of God? There is another court, and there is another Judge. And before Him, all men and all judges will give account. If a nation's high court should pass judgment on the Almighty, should you then be surprised if the Almighty should pass judgment on that court and that nation?"
