Yep. I got that. But the thing is .... this really isn't a moral issue but a civil rights one. I understand that people are trying to make it a moral issue. But it's not. It's a civil rights issue and that is something that the supreme court is supposed to get involved with .... civil rights.

Just heard DOMA has been ruled unconstitutional. No confirmation yet.

good point. i would agree. it is unlawful to deny rights to those who engage in an activity that isn't illegal, and i hope he will vote accordingly. i suppose it becomes a legal issue when rights are denied because of an act that does not affect anyone else.

there is no legal reason to deny same sex marriage, and i have never heard a convincing argument for a moral reason either.

Indeed it was, and I agree with the SCOTUS

Good ruling, IMO

I support this ruling as the Federal Government should not be involved in legislating moral issues.

Leave this issue to the states where it belongs.

wow, some people are ignorant of history. The man is stating that he judges all laws as they would when the constitution was written. Get that WRITTEN....

He is saying that the choice of abortion and gay marriage are not subjects for which the Supreme Court should rule on. I agree, They should not its a states right/ majority of the peoples right to rule on these issues.

I have read already that, that the fate of Doma and Prop 8 were struck down, It should never have gotten that far, the people have a voice, the only thing Prop 8 did was kill the voice and make it to wear the people no longer matter.

I applaud that gay marriage can happen now, I am sad that in order for that to take place, the court deemed fit to take away the peoples voice in the matter at hand.

I agree with Scalia. I say we make him president.

Now for all this silliness to blow away, i'd vote that we abolish marriage as anything the government has any say so in altogether. This will shut those people up. They only want equal rights as a minority because they want tax breaks and handouts from the government.

I'm willing to live without any incentives from the Government to get married? Aren't you? Who's with me?
