    It surely does go against the wishes of SOME people. Just not enough to matter. Had the decision went the other way, the majority of people would have dissented. This way, it's the minority, (namely, you and your fellow ideologues,) that it goes against.

    You can't always get what you want..... America will, and always has, been drawn to the side of freedom and liberty and justice for all, despite your wishes.

    Adapt and improvise. Or, I hear the middle east is nice this time of year. Gays aren't allowed to marry there. Perhaps you might find their society more suitable.

    So...the three branches of govt were set up to deal with real life situations. the u.s. S.ct. Being the ultimate and final determiner of the interpretation of the constitution.

    And so said our founding fathers.
    no thats not what the founders said.......that is what the USSC said.

    THE
    second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.

    It soils the institution of marriage but, more importantly, it solidifies the idea that we're not a democracy....we're lorded over by 5 unelected and robed buffoons who call all the shots.

    It's ridiculous and infuriating that Justice Kennedy, by himself, can lord over 350 million people without receiving a single vote

    decision should have been made long ago. Hopefully politics can focus on fixing the country now.

    And from what I understand, the decision was written in a way to try and be very limited as it relates to potentially other non-traditional types of marriage. But, that will be a case for another day.
    Unless they specifically said it was a narrow decision affecting sexual orientation, then it applies to almost every other type of prohibition.

    What part of your marriage has been redefined? What about your life is changing?


    Are they now going to FORCE churches to perform same-sex marriages even if it violates their religious beliefs? There is NO GOOD that can come of this.
    Churches aren't now forced to perform heterosexual marriages, so I'm not sure why you think they'd be forced to perform same-sex marriages. No good can come of this? How about more children being in a two-parent, married household?

    The court and the state may recognize their marriage, but I sure don't have to.


    I'm not surprised this was the ruling, but there needed to be some clarification on who must recognize a government sanctioned marriage. What has been the trend is that homosexual relationships get precedence over religious beliefs and that is a dangerous road to travel. We are on the verge of creating classes of people that have elevated rights.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
