IMO this is a common sense decision, but there will be some stubborn mules who will stamp their hooves and call this a populist decision.

a reply to: xuenchenThe supreme court can not make laws. The Congress and Senate of the United States make laws, the individuals states Congress and Senate make laws. The only thing the SCOTUS have done is created a huge problem with lower state courts and individual rights. The gay marriage thing is not over. Actually the Congress and Senate the United States should not even be involved with what individual states do to determine what is right and wrong for their states.

Beezer, we are old and out of date.
If one now says anything that disagrees with the socialist liberal progressive agenda, one is engaging in hate speech.
No, you are experiencing a difference of opinion that is now in the minority.
Because I disagreed with the Supreme Court getting involved rather than letting States decide, which they had been doing and all would eventually do: I have been called (subtly, a racist and now anti-womens rights)
No matter I said I thought gays should be allowed to marry, because I see unfortunate unintended consequences in the ruling, I have been branded a hater.
One can no longer disagree with any liberal idea
one can no longer disagree with any socialist idea
one can no longer disagree with any progressive idea
regardless of the idea, be it a tiny issue or a big issue
without being bullied by the liberal socialist progressives
and being called a hater and engaging in hate speech
And we were smashed by you guys for trying to bring society to a new low for wanting to have the same simple right as you do.
This is a double edged sword my dear. Everything you are feeling, we have felt for thousands of years as gay people. It's called being in the minority - popular opinion has washed over you and now you are smarting, tis all. You'll live and the world won't end. And YES, you can still have your opinions but expect to find that most disagree with you now.
The very fact that you support the right of people who disagree
to disagree with the ruling
automatically in the eyes of the liberal socialist progressive
makes you a hater and engaging in hate speech.
The liberal socialist progressive can not tolerate free speech
if the speech in any way differs from the proscribed and
accepted ideas of the liberal socialist progressive left.
My dear we all believe in freedom of expression and opinion. I might disagree with you stance on the view of gay marriage, but I support your freedom to disagree. That is how liberal and pluaralistic views work - There are many roads to a single destination. We don't all need to be on the same road, but we are all moving forward to the same place.

How sad for us all.
... in adult retrospective surveys, victims of abuse indicate that no more than 10% to 30% of offenders were strangers, with the remainder being either family members or acquaintances.
A 2006–2007 Idaho study of 430 cases found that 82% of juvenile sex offenders were known to the victims (acquaintances 46% or relatives 36%).
One study of adult women in San Francisco estimated that 17% of women were abused by stepfathers and 2% were abused by biological fathers. Source
