My concern has been in the past and is now for the kids that I can see nothing good that will come from this. You cannot change the definition of something without making that something different from what it was. So marriage as we have long understood it no longer exists according to the Supreme Court. And THAT is what will make it increasingly irrelevant to our society in general because if getting married makes no difference, why bother to do it? And when people don't bother to do it, all the historical, cultural, and societal benefits are lost. I do believe it will be the children, both straight and gay, who will suffer the worst consequences of that.
    The bigots said the same exact thing about inter-racial marriage. Marriage will continue to exist as it always has...if anything if will be stronger as a result of this ruling.

    All Americans should give two ****s about the Constitution.
    Would this be the same Constitution that Sen. John C. Calhoun's father refused to sign and become a Founding Father from South Carolina?
    With Sen. Calhoun being the father of the civil war with his "Nullification" Manifesto and description of slavery as for the "positive good" in 1830 .

    They've never been explained. In fact, I know better than to ask you what those costs are because I know from years of experience that no answer would be coming.

    Supreme Court: Anthony Kennedy's gay marriage decision makes justice a gay rights icon - POLITICO

    The author of the article states that this action by T. Kennedy became the playbook for nomination battles from then on .

    A good lesson for those who think that elections don't matter. The next President will likely appoint at least 1 if not 2 to the Supreme Court. People should think very carefully before casting there ballot. If McCain or Romney had been elected....we wouldn't have this historic ruling today....that is for certain.

    And this right here is the main reason that, while I may not vote for the Democrat, it would take an act of god to get me to vote for a Republican these days.

    Scalia should be enough to scare anyone away from voting GOP. What a religious whack job.
