    and this week has underscored the reality that the most impactful aspect of electing a president is the justices (s)he nominates to the supreme court
    except they're appointed for life and i'm pretty sure kennedy's appointer would be horrified at his ruling today. New issues arise over the course of decades, and many many federal judges break with the approval of those who appoint them.

    Granted, the newer judges vote exactly as one would expect, as an issue like gay marriage was easily anticipated. I'm quite sure roberts gave a blood oath to vote against it, since bush II was pushing a constitutional amendment along those lines

    as an adult yes, but religious condemnation has often led to suicide of closeted teenagers surrounded by that mentality.

    You really don't get out much do you? If you did you would know most Americans are not threatened by SSM.

    Because this isn't based on hate. The populace has changed, SSM is accepted by a majority, and the demographics are showing it is here to stay. You can be angry old man all you want, but waving your fist at the sky isn't gonna change it. It is a good thing, it is about love. Two people of the same sex getting married affects you in no way, unless you are full of anger and obsess about it, that is your call.

In the nutshell, 5 robes just granted a right to a cross section of American's where previously none had existed. They Amended the Constitution. That is SCARY!

    Tim-
    if that happens it's on a course to happen regardless of today's decision

    and no kidding, their job is to enforce rights where they were wrongfully deprived

    it's literal ROFLMAO hilarious that scalia and others claim that THIS decision - not some boogieman down the road - is akin to the dred scott ruling, and their fight to deprive OTHERS of liberty is somehow analogous to the black civil rights movement. They will stoop to no end to makes themselves the victims

    Yeah, when I ask a question you should decide to either answer it or not respond.

    I would not be surprised to see the Wingnut Caucus of the party try something stupid like that, but cooler heads would likely prevail.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    If you want to gauge how far america has come on this, other than the multitude of polls, i recall in 2013, after a michigan judge's ruling very briefly allowed gay couples to marry, someone tweeted "die fags die" in caps over. Now today the same individual was celebrating the ruling.
