Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
If you actually picked up a legal digest and read Loving....you would be embarrassed by how terribly wrong you are.......sorry.
There is increasing rate of divorce and late marriage around the world. It is good to know someone wants to marry this days. At least gays can save marriage tradition. (Kidding.)

And as time goes on and people become more educated, the sky-is-falling outrage among the anti-SSM crowd will fade as they - or at least their children and children's children - come to realize that YES, people really are "born that way", and that there's no good reason why someone who was born that way should be disallowed from marrying a consenting adult who was also born that way.
Okay? Get over it.

Yeah, I understand it. Even though I consider it a stretch in some ways I was pretty sure they'd invoke the 14th if they ruled this way, it's pretty obvious.
Personally I thought the silence of the Constitution on marriage rendered the 10th the most important, and that the matter should be left to the several states with SCOTUS maybe deciding a "full faith a credit" clause applied.
But I get the rationale behind the ruling and can't really blame them for going that way.
At least, if they stretched a point, they stretched it in favor of an individual liberty...
