I dont support Gay Marriage, but congratulations for them for their win today.
I am more saddened that it was a loss for our Constitution today.
In dissent, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., said the Constitution had nothing to say on the subject of same-sex marriage.
“If you are among the many Americans — of whatever sexual orientation — who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today’s decision,” Chief Justice Roberts wrote. “Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal. Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”
In dissent, Chief Justice Roberts said the majority opinion was “an act of will, not legal judgment.”
Chief Justice Roberts responded that “people of faith can take no comfort in the treatment they receive from the majority today.”
In a second dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia mocked the soaring language of Justice Kennedy, who has become the nation’s most important judicial champion of gay rights.
“The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic,” Justice Scalia wrote of his colleague’s work. “Of course the opinion’s showy profundities are often profoundly incoherent.”
Its amazing how in about 15 years we have went from Anything Gay marriage to it being all over our front door now. The gay Agenda is truly pushing and taking over society. You have to embrace, you have to accept, or else you will lose your house, your job, your friends, jailed, put in re education training. Kind of sounds scary doesnt it, but that is where this is taking us.
There is a silver lining though
The majority and dissenting opinions took differing view about whether the decision would harm religious liberty. Justice Kennedy said the First Amendment “ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths.” He said both sides should engage in “an open and searching debate.”
Me personally , if none of this is Constitutional, and not based on anything from Government, including the 14th Amendment, then I dont see why they even made a decision, they should have turned it back to the states and let them decide.
