    Maybe after 1700 years of heterosexuals having to stay single and hide their identity, or face severe persecution, we can call it even. Please don't pretend this wasn't important to you either. I'm not falling for it
    Wait. What? Be happy in your victory and move on. A lot of us are glad this is resolved, and--believe it or not--most of us are happy with the outcome. Why would you want to rattle cages?

    No, I specifically stated that marriage does not have to be necessary FOR ANY PURPOSE in order for it to be a legitimate interest of govt

He spent almost the whole time explaining why it was the right thing to do, and almost no time explaining why it was the legal thing to do, and this despite the fact that the legal arguments where definitely there. There where multiple paths that could have explained the legal reasoning that would have been consistent with precedent, but he chose not to explain the reasoning used. This made Roberts job with his dissent very easy, and that dissent is what will be remembered(he has a very vivid writing style) along with the outcome. It is like Kennedy tailored the ruling to avoid making is usable as any kind of possible precedent, and to do that he really did not talk about the law or the constitution.

    I kinda expected that I would like the outcome, but not like the ruling, but the level of my discontent with the ruling is really high. That I suspect it was intentionally done that way does not change my dislike for it.
    The intent probably was to limit the scope. At least that is how I read it. Gotta tread lightly in these matters. It's not something that lends itself to sweeping adjudication. For example, churches will still be allowed to discriminate as they see fit, I believe. This decision only limits what the states can do.

    That said, Scalia acted like a brat. His opinion sounded a lot like some of our posters who want to impose their religious beliefs on the rest of us.
