    I just saw the news on this and was going to post a link. You beat me to it.

    This is GREAT news!!

    I liked one bit in the article:
    "Anthony Kennedy, a conservative justice who has broken with his ideological colleagues to author several decisions expanding rights for LGBT people, again sided with the court’s four liberals to strike down the state bans. The majority ruled that preventing same-sex people from marrying violated their constitutional right to equal protection under the law and that the states were unable to put forth a compelling reason to withhold that right from people."

    from: Supreme Court affirms right to gay marriage

    They will get over it or they will just be unhappy.

    I don't hate gays. It's just not a real marriage - and it's chipping away at the strength of our nation.

    Where chaos rules; nations fail.
