Yes it's a proud day for democracy!

We've shown the world once again the rights of the minority voice can dictate over majority vote. Three cheers for freedom of Liberty!!!

Maybe a few will chime in and tell us where you'll be go'in for your honeymoon? Lovers Leap?

They said the same thing after Brown v. Board of Education.

Blu, if you are unfamiliar with that decision then I strongly suggest you take a moment to learn about it. I say that realizing that there are dozens of links posted here everyday, but this one is fundamental. It's one of the five or so court cases every American should know a little bit about.

Next fight; three way marriage.
Hey Ron, that's already a right in your neck of the woods. I even know a guy down there with 5 wives and about 20 kids.

So we can apply that to the 2nd amendment too then... good to know!

Re: today's ruling: Good. Expands freedom, which is always good. Endless new fodder for the ST debate team too. Yay!

wrong

the majority of Americans believe same sex marriage should be legal

Supermajority Support: The highest percentage ever of Americans a 63% supermajority - back the freedom to marry as a constitutional right for gay couples, according to a 2015 CNN/ORC poll. This is up 14 percentage points from 2010, with significant increases by both Republicans and Democrats. Three other polls on marriage in 2015 tracked support at 60% or higher.

It does apply to all rights.

Just need to sort out exactly what rights are guaranteed.

Marriage is an easy call: marriage laws apply equally to all people.

2nd amendment applies to all people as well.

But words like "arms" and "bear" are not so simple.

Blue, really?

You want a tyranny of the majority?

The whole reason we have a Bill of Rights is because two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for lunch IS a democracy.


BTW the governor of Mississippi is reportedly refusing to issue licenses until the Federal Court of Appeals rules.

The rights of a minority must always be protected from the votes of the majority.

Thus why we are a federal republic and not a democracy.

Yeah Dave.. that is the whole point.
