    Easy win win here is for the govt to stop recognizing marriage as a legal thing. Its a tradition, nothing more. If people then want to legally share things, they can get a civil union.

    Scalia was...pissed. Not really any other word to describe him. His dissent reads like a rant.

    I'm too angry to answer you right now, jumping jack. Enjoy your victory

    When you come out in the daylight you will find that most of the country supports this decision.

    Yup. The irony was his dissent argued the Lawrence v. Texas would inevitably lead to same-sex marriage. If I meet Scalia I will ask him for some lotto numbers.

    How many churches in States where SSM was legal were sued for not performing same-sex marriages prior to today's ruling?
