    I've always been of the opinion that the gay marriage issue was best decided by the states, not the Supreme Court. I'm support gay marriage, I just think the Supreme Court has more important (imo) things to rule on.

    So today, the Supreme Court decided 5-4 that gay marriage was a fundamental right to all couples. Hooray for that, but really, what does that really change for the states that don't already allow gay marriage?

    John Roberts gave a "fully throated" (ahem) explanation of his dissent:
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...ssent-constitution-had-nothing-to-do-with-it/

    I'm not that up on Supreme Court decision making, but is he saying the same thing I'm thinking? That maybe he supports the right of gay marriage, but doesn't think it is a matter of the Constitution to decide?

    And why is that TRAITOR John Roberts dissenting, shouldn't he be in the liberals back pocket?

    Now we just need to approve polygamy, polyandry, and all polyamorous relationships, and I'll be happy.

    Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, Alito Suddenly Realize They Will Be Villains In Oscar-Winning Movie One Day

    <snip>
    “Oh, God, the major social ramifications, the political intrigue, all the important people involved in the case—I’m going to be played by some sinister character actor in a drama with tons of award buzz, aren’t I?” said Scalia, joining his fellow dissenting justices in realizing they would be antagonists in a film potentially titled Defense Of Marriage and probably written by Tony Kushner. “I’m going to be portrayed as a closed-minded Neanderthal and the very symbol of backward thinking. And at the end of the movie, when my character realizes he’s on the wrong side of history, the audience will feel emotionally fulfilled because the hero attorney, probably played by George fucking Clooney, will have won. Great.”

    For me, it really doesn't matter if you are gay or not. Being gay does not change the fundamentals of humanity. It is the kindness and care for others that make the world a better place to live in. So I am glad that the gays are allowed their marriage if they find happiness in that.

    I have many gay friends, and indeed at least one gay relative. Between the hetero couples and the gay couples, the gay couples have a much more interesting life with heavy focuses on art, gardening, travelling - just lots of things raising kids pretty much make difficult if not impossible. All adults should have the freedom to choose who they love.
