Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Marriage Equality

The United States Supreme Court ruled that marriage equality is the law of the land for every single state in our great country. I believe the ruling was 5-4 with Anthony Kennedy being the swing vote from the conservative judges. While I'm happy with the outcome, the four dissenters despite their own personal views shouldn't have ignored the power of the 14th amendment.

A lot of people are outraged by this ruling. I'm not. I personally don't care to restrict a person's right to marry whomever they wish. I don't want churches forced to sanction something which goes against their beliefs, though. But, if people love each other, all the power to them.
Of course, I could be missing a bigger picture.
Don't see how, though.

Don't get me wrong. I'll probably still make jokes.
For this is what I do.

Everyone entitled to their own opinion, but I am thankful no one I know would ever marry the same sex.

Still being debated here by parliament, press, churches and individuals.
I don't believe politicans should make the decision - a national referendum
may be in order - everyone votes and here voting is compulsory even though
you can just scribble big XXXX's on the card, thus an invalid vote - you must have your name removed from the electoral lists as having voted.
The choice of IDIOTS in my state election this last state election were so utterly devoid of intelligence resulted in my putting in big letters - IDIOTS across my voting slip - saved me a $250 fine but gave me great satisfaction - ha ha!

Oh happy day. You can't tax everyone and say the government only works for some and not others.

Let people be, they are not hurting anyone, I personally know so many same sex couple, they are the best parents and the children are as happy as any others.

Welcome to the same-sex marriage club, USA! We've been waiting for you! Hurray!

I was surprised to learn that actually at one time, the Supreme Court ruled that you couldn't engage in gay relationships even in privacy. Times have changed at last.
