    Nothing in the Constitution supports the effort to redefine marriage away from what it is, and has always been understood to be.

    Whether or not the Constitution can be described as “a moral or religious document” is completely irrelevant to its purpose and authority.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Re: Has your marriage changed since SCOTUS ruling?

    OMG you could not even find a real response. Interracial was court passed just as same sex marriage was passed by the courts. What in the world does this have to do with the race card? This is about two court decisions that allowed marriage. Hmmm You just can't account for the way some, like you Bob, think. Your response seems to say you are afraid someone is taking away from you. Sorry yours is a silly response to a valid comparison about court decisions.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    Your personal opinion means nothing. The constitution was written to prevent personal opinions from becoming law.

    If so, then the government shouldn't address marriage one way or another, correct? They should act as if it doesn't even exist, right?

    Unless someone is being forced into it I don't see why they should pay it any mind.

    You know that's not what I'm talking about. "Personal opinions" have no place.

    I might have used other words, but that sums it up pretty well. I would add that the same applies to the USSC decisions in a similar way for a smaller group.
