    Without the Constitution, we have nothing.

    Which means that right now, we have nothing.


    The Constitution is the only thing that gives the federal government any authority to do anything. It is the rule of law. With things like this, it is clear that we live under pure fiat and whim.
    Says you. I am an American too and I think this is a great decision and I am very proud of our nation for taking the step forward towards freedom, liberty and justice for ALL!

    The majority opinion explicitly addresses that the First Amendment protects religious institutions from this ruling.

    No, it doesn't apply to other types of prohibition. It could theoretically be relevant precedent for other types of prohibition, but it's not some automatic road to children marrying furniture any more than the interracial marriage decision was. Interracial marriage means we have to let children marry furniture, right?

    I think this is the decision... (I'm reading now.)

    The Supreme Court may have forced this down our throats, but this just makes me hate gays where before, I didn't.

    it's not the same. this decision is firmly supported by the fourteenth amendment.

    you're actually arguing equivalency between allowing black people to be enslaved and allowing gay marriage to be recognized by the state. i'm not even going to put a question mark there, because i already know the answer.

    interpreting the law is their job. they might have gotten it wrong yesterday. they got the mandate part right, IMO, under general welfare and necessary and proper.

    oh, and before you blow a gasket, i don't support the ACA as a solution. i do, however, support single payer, so maybe go ahead and blow a gasket, i guess.
