In order for this to be a valid comparison, then you need to show a similar comparison, not the complete opposite, turning to your belief system, rather than facts.
    Here is the text of the modern oath taken by supreme court justices:

    "I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

    Willing to bet you have to recite the entire oath and that every justice sitting today has. This presumes that God is a fact, regardless of your trying to wiggle out of the point with the different gods mention. Btw, all the members of the court are from the Judeo-Christian tradition. So, no, not a different God at all.

    With the Nix v. Hedden, 149 U.S. 304 (1893) ruling, the Supreme Court established, as “the law of the land”, that a tomato is not a fruit. Of course, this was a nonsensical ruling. By every accepted biological definition, a tomato is, indeed, a fruit, and the court ruling otherwise would not change this.

    Implementing an unalterable falsehood into law does not make it true; it remains every bit as false as before. All that is thus accomplished is to make a mockery of the rule of law itself.

    Trying to define, by law, the concept of marriage to include anything other than a specific type of union between a man and a woman is exactly the same sort of mockery of law as ruling that a tomato is not a fruit. A tomato remains what it is, and marriage remains what it is, regardless of any absurd attempt to define it otherwise by law.
    So your idea of marriage is still a white woman and a white man or a black woman and a black man. Interracial marriages were brought about by the courts as well. Less people approved of interracial marriage then people approve of same sex marriage.

    Re: Has your marriage changed since SCOTUS ruling?

    My husband and I are both in our first marriage and have been married for decades. The recent SCOTUS ruling will not affect us personally in any way.

    But what I do strongly believe is that the assault on the traditional family as an important and valuable American institution has been further eroded and made unimportant and irrelavent. By SCOTUS now, illegally and way outside its constitutional authority, forcing us to change the definition of marriage and thereby make marriage into something it never was and was never intended to be, more and more young people won't bother with it. We will have ever more children born out of wedlock and be much more likely to grow up without the advantage of the traditional family with a loving mother and father in the home.

    Marriage has always been about the children that were assumed to be the logical result of the marriage, and all marriage laws in all 50 states were designed first and foremost to protect the children. You cannot change the definition of something, however, without making that something into something different than what it was.

    IMO, while I have always supported the necessity and ability of gay people to have the necessary protections and rights enjoyed by others, and I have no animosity whatsoever to any gay person, the SCOTUS decision has done irreparable damage to the institution of marriage and we as a people, both straight and gay, will be the worse off for it.

    We don't let other people define our marriage. It's ours. We define it.

    Also - it's a damn good marriage.
