    What signals that marriage is becoming meaningless is the ever higher percentage of people who don't bother with it at all.
    Actually the more people think about it before doing it the MORE meaningful it becomes. It used to be like eating candy.

    I thought this appropriate:

    So that means it was 4-4 along ideological lines, not about the constitution, per se.

    Then Kennedy, always wanting to be the "Me, me!" of the SCOTUS, contrived an as far reaching argument as possible, not referencing the "equal protection" clause of the 14th many thought would be referenced, but instead the "due process" clause of the 14th and in a very nebulous reference, that no one really expected.

    So watch out, boys and girls, as the next time a cat-owner wants to enter their cat in a dog show, "due process" will support 'em!

    Seriously, does anybody even care about the definition of words anymore as the foundation to determine if something like "due process" applies???

    Marriage means "between a man and a woman as husband and wife".

    There is no rational "due process" reference that can change that reality.

    And, of course, 5-4 is hardly a mandate.

    "Due process" doesn't mean you have the liberty to do whatever you want simply because you or enough of you want to. That's ludicrous!

    It's a huge stretch to say that what happens in one state must be allowed in another state, as this ruling sets precedent. Now one state can legislate anything and then every state has to allow it. There goes state's rights.

    But to step out off that limb and say that "due process" can prevent a state from declaring "we will not allow the perform of the oxymoroninc "gay marriages" in our state" is the height of Kennedy's dictatorial ego.

    Roberts is right: the constitution had nothing to do with this decision.

    Why even the four liberals were sitting on the "equal protection" clause, a plausible yet still definitively inapplicable reference with respect to the subject matter: "marriage". "Due process"? Nope .. though, sure, they'll go along with Master Kennedy, to get what they ideologically want.

    Kennedy stepped off solid constitutional ground and into irrelevant ether.

    Thus the last word simply has not been spoken here, not by a long shot.

    Religious liberty will now most certainly mount some challenges that could easily overturn this ridiculous and fragile ruling.
    Wow. According to you medical marijuana is now legal in all 50 States. Now it is REALLY time to celebrate.

    Oh, so you think I'm applying incorrectly? Well, at least I explained why. So go ahead, let's hear your version. I mean, if you are going to accuse someone of lacking reading skills, I'm sure you'll be able to back it up.

    It would seem so, but they aren't bound by lower court decisions unless they want to be. It's almost like they were dragged kicking and screaming to the bank to pick up a $10,000 check. They would've preferred the bank mail it, i.e., the lower courts settle the thing and not leave it hanging. Everyone who's honest knew where this decision would fall. It's extremely poor jurisprudence though. But it's done, and now we can move on to more significant things.

    Not really. I know how old you are and I was born and raised in Wyoming so there is a thing or two I know about defending myself and using the appropriate tools. You are welcome to make all the veiled threats you want. I will defend my rights.
