It's official !!!
The Supreme Court says same sex marriage is protected by the 14th Amendment.
State bans are now illegal.
The decision was just handed down.
Supreme Court extends same-sex marriage nationwide
Who cares! A guy can be on acid and have sex with his pet goat. So wha? I't not my problem. Christian and Muslim groups are in an uproar because this new philosophy does not jive with their antiquated books of beliefs. Religion is a farce.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court has declared that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States.
Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court's ruling on Friday means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage.

I don't get it - why is this still an issue? I don't even think there needed to be Supreme Court Ruling - isn't equality guaranteed by the constitution?
Now the whole benefits thing I understand, there is a legal process involved and I guess that's the foremost the reason for the ruling.
So now the question is, what about marriage between 2 + 1 or 2 + 2 or 3 + 5 or 1 + 6 or 1 + 25 .. ?
Or, and to the religion nuts .. I don't see where are you can be threatened by that?!

That's different. Interracial marriage is not against biblical principles, and the churches largely fixed the apostisy within the church thereby mitigating any infringements that might have otherwise come to pass. There is however clear and concise teachings about homosexuality and what marriage is. Though some churches willingly ignore these teachings, it does not negate how obviousvthe teachings are.

Not foolish at all. Again I bring up the Loving v Virgina ruling in 1967. How many religious liberties have been trampled since then in reference to that ruling?
3 You shall not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, 4 for they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods. Then the anger of the Lord would be kindled against you, and he would destroy you quickly.
