The Supreme Court on Monday decided not to review rulings that cleared the way for same-sex marriage in Virginia, Utah, Oklahoma, Indiana and Wisconsin, a surprising move that shows the court is comfortable with the expansion of such unions throughout the nation. The court’s decision came without explanation and puts off a ruling about the constitutionality of gay marriage that would apply to all 50 states. But it sent a clear signal that a majority of the court did not feel the need to overturn lower court decisions that found state prohibitions were unconstitutional. Marriages that had been on hold in the five states that were before the court began taking place a few hours later.

Why does it bother other people that people of the same sex want to marry? There are people that claim it's because of their religion but really it is because of their own bigotry. The religious people in this nation needs to learn that everyone in this country doesn't want to live by their religion so stop trying to force them to live by it. There is no logical reason for same sex marriage to be banned anywhere in this nation.
