The people opposed to GM have consistently demonstrated in this thread that they don't really understand the nature of this ruling, or U.S. law in general. They just want their morality to reign supreme but they cannot really tell us why today's ruling was wrong or "activism" anymore than they can tell us why GM itself should not be allowed.
More emotional appeals, more argument ad populum. It's really pedantic. I actually encourage them to keep it up... their reasoning is so faulty that they will be easily defeated in SCOTUS.
One unelected judge can overturn the will of the people. A flaw in our system? I think so.

The Constitution guarantees equal protection under the law and due process. That applies to the legality of marriage.
I suppose the answer is... when you're a SC justice and a majority of your very small circle of peers disagree with you on what the law should be.
