there is no human right to marriage and there has not been until the SCOTUS decision a constitutional right to marry and now that right is only for Homosexuals. Straights still don't have the right to marriage protected under the Constitution.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
ChesterJohn, there is only one SCOTUS. No, the justices didn't fail. BTW, judges don't testify. They state their opinions.
Phage the five SCOTUS in favor failed to do their job in a judicial manner and that too was testified by the opposing SCOTUS.
Applying these tenets, the Court has long held the right to marry is protected by the Constitution...
Equality is "political correctness?"
One cannot ignore their duty for the sake political correctness.

Sorry, but you are wrong. Same sex marriage existed before even the Code of Hammurabi. 700 years before it was created, Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum were two male Egyptians married to each other in life and buried together in death. Even their tomb depicts many images of them embracing and/or kissing.
Archaeologists also uncovered a burial in Czech Republic where a Bronze Age male was buried with female burial items. If his orientation was not accepted at the time, he would not have been buried with such care and with a reflection of his personality so evident.
Artwork found in Sicily dated back to the Mesolithic period (around 10,000 years ago) depict male on male intercourse. The fact that they made art of it shows that it was something celebrated not despised.
