Supreme Court Legalizes Same Sex Marriage As Roof Completely Falls In On Republicans

kentucky same sex marriage

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that state laws banning same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.

The Court found that the Fourteen Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people, and it also requires a marriage between two people of the same sex to be recognized when it is lawfully licensed and performed out of state. In other words, state laws that ban same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.

Same-sex marriage is now legal nationwide.

Justice Kennedy joined the liberal justices, and Chief Justice Roberts voted with the conservatives.

In the last two days, Republicans have lost major ruling on the ACA, and same-sex marriage. On top of the two court ruling, they have seen the rise of racist Donald Trump in the party’s presidential polling and been forced to retreat on their support of the Confederate flag.

One could not map out a worse week for Republicans. For the rest of the country, this has been a historic week where same-sex marriage has become a legal right in all states, and the nation has moved to closer to affordable access to health care becoming a right.

Anyone who doesn’t believe that the United States is moving left is delusional.

  1. As the parent of a gay son, I could not be happier! He hopefully will be able to experience the happiness that his Mother and I have for so many years as a result of this ruling. Good job SCOTUS!

  2. So, where is that pastor who wants to light himself on fire….I’VE GOT THE GASOLINE AND MATCHES READY!!!!


  3. This is great news and a major slap to repugs who have been using this to woo the phony xtians. In a few years, people will laugh at how these conservative jerks got their panties in a wad over equal rights.

  4. This is a victory for all the people! Gay, straight, white black, Catholics Jewish, etc………! Two in a row! Yesssssssssss! More power to all in the gay community that want to become one!

  5. I’m still waiting on Rush Limburger to leave the country over Obamacare and Ted Nutjob…I mean Nugent to leave over Obama’s re-election or go to jail.

  6. Right after Limpballs moves to Costa Rica… after all conservative windbags always follow through with their hyperbolic pledges.

  7. My calendar’s pretty empty this weekend, and that’s a good thing. I can’t imagine a sweeter way to spend a weekend that sitting around, just listening to conservatives’ heads explode.

  8. I’m happy for you and your son as well as for all those who wish to get married before but were denied. What are all those people who were against this going to say when it is proven that this ruling has had no affect on heterosexual marriages nor on the institution of marriage itself?

  9. I love living in the great state of BLUE CALIFORNIA.

    TEA BAG Texas has to recognize this or just f****** secede because they will LOSE federal $$$.

  10. I think Cruz and company better suspend their campaign and get back to work. Their base will dry up if they keep lying to them.
    I am so smiling right now!

  11. Hehehe. The GOP are having a horrible week! Their own Court has turned on them three times in two days! Chief Justice Roberts can expect hate mail aplenty now! Not to mention threats on his life

  12. Uh oh! Now where was that horse I wanted to get married to for so long? Lol. I can just hear the homophobes heads exploding all over the country about now. I’m happy to hear that clearer heads prevailed and another segment of our community is able to share in the same rights that many us have had forever. Now it’s time to get back to the fight on racial issues. We still have lots of work to do on that front. Let’s celebrate this victory for our GLBT family this weekend though. Cheers!

  13. If conservatives were really concerned about the institution of marriage, why aren’t they demanding the end to divorce? That affects the institution, and the family unit, and all those things that the cons put forward. I’m so pleased that the U.S. has finally caught up to most of the rest of us who live in civilized societies. If the U.S. ever decided to look outside itself to find out how other societies function successfully without limiting gay rights, contraceptive use, abortion, freedom FROM religion and a host of other things the cons want to “protect you from”, maybe things would change for the better, faster.

  14. The fall of the Confederate flag, the validation of ACA subsidies, and now this.
    Watch for conservative pundits renew their claim that “the end of days” is upon us in … 3 … 2 … 1 …

  15. Via SCOTUSblog’s live blog of today’s decisions:

    Scalia’s dissent has an awesome footnote on page 7 (note 22): he says, “If, even as the price to be paid for a fifth vote, I ever joined an opinion for the Court that began: ‘The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity,’ I would hide my head in a bag. The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie.” He is not happy with Justice Kennedy.

  16. They ARE trying to abolish divorce. There was even a ballot initiative to that effect in CA – did not get enough signatures (wonder why) to get ON the ballot, but they keep trying. One state (not recalling which) tried to have a two-tier marriage system, one as childless and the other for procreation. This may sound fairly progressive, but it was not. The childless one conveyed more of a common law marriage status only with few real protections. It was a sneer at those who don’t take marriage ‘seriously’ and Duggarize their commitment.

    But overall, this isn’t working for them, so they still blame gay people for…something.

  17. Just a gentle reminder: there is nothing worse than a wounded animal backed into a corner! Be prepared for more craziness from the RWNJ’s!

  18. “If conservatives were really concerned about the institution of marriage, why aren’t they demanding the end to divorce? ”

    Sshhh..Maple, don’t give the GOP any ideas!![WINK]

  19. Congrats to all the couples that can now move on happily with their lives..It was a long time coming, wishing you all well!

    Two major decisions from SCOTUS that actually are improving lives…Wow, its great!

  20. As a testimonial to the healing qualities of this auspicious decision…

    I woke up today for the first time in 3 months without chronic pain from an injury; I said to myself, “Self, you’re healed; must be because SCOTUS voted for, not against gay marriage”. Little did I know. I rubbed my eyes in disbelief when I read the news. Who knew? A sign, I tell ya’, it’s a sign from the universal poo-paw…

  21. Wait! Weren’t there Republicans who swore that, if Obamacare or Same Sex Marriage were upheld by SCOTUS, they would leave the country or secede from the Union or light themselves on fire?? Surely they are not hypocritical liars, so, when does the exodus, secession and burning of the bigots begin?? Do we need tickets? Could Ted Nugent be first in line?

  22. “He isn’t happy with Justice Kennedy”

    Justice Scalia isn’t happy with Justice Scalia. The only thing that makes Scalia happy is when he makes himself (and all those around him) miserable.

  23. Yea but, we are now seeing that the hate states will not marry gays and lesbians. Is that legal now?

  24. …to all gays reading this: Congratulations!!! Yet another step to full equality throughout this nation…
    …wishing God would rapture the Teahadists,Teatards and NeoConArtists right to Hell…
