Just remember Little Rock. One day the troops were blocking the kids from entering the school. The very next day they were escorting them in.

 

That's the way all this is going to play out.

I think we are looking at the start of what could be the next civil war, if the rednecks get angry enough to rise up again over states' rights to deny an entire group of people equal protection under the law. I figured gun control would do it though, not marriage equality. Even then, I really don't see it happening. Not since Hostess brought Twinkies back to the Walmart.

 

Judges serve at the pleasure of, and are paid by the people. If the judges won't serve, I suggest they return their pay. Put their money where their hearts are. I don't think they will. Either because their hearts are truly corrupt, or because, like with so many other things, the money is more important.

 

Speaking of the money, you know, this whole marriage equality thing wasn't really a big deal not too long ago. Gays were fine with their civil unions and domestic partnerships. You know what got them all riled up and what led to 2 days ago? Some insurance company got greedy and refused to pay benefits to a gay partner because their marriage was not legally recognized. An insurance scam. That's what really got this ball rolling. Now that that loophole is closed

Once again, the US has shown that they are united in name, but not in actions that they take.

The woman usually gets the alimony in this country even if they work, that is a joke that I made!

 

Its not about gender or employment, like another said, it's about income under a certain set of circumstances.

How quickly things change. One day we were listening to how bad it was that Obamacare was upheld by the court. That was quickly forgotten because of the Marriage ruling. 

 

They will still be talking about the Marriage ruling in 60 years but I predict in 6 months the focus will have changed once again to the next Presidential election. All of this will be shut up because the debate of the next presidential election will take priority both for the Democrats as well as Republicans. There are so many that are running on the Republican side that it has to be filtered through by the right. 

I think part of the bitterness of the right is because of the timing of the rulings. They had just captured both houses of Congress with the Tea Party "leading the way". Their supporters thought that it was "their time" and then out of the blue, these devastating Supreme Court rulings. It's a bitter pill to swallow for them.

There are more important things in the world to fight about anyway, such as ISIS, AIDS and cancer, ebola,and more violence. I'd say gay marriage is the very last thing to waste our government's time with.

Even though Corporate America would disagree with this, I think China is worrisome. They used to say "What's good for GM is what's good for America."

This same philosophy is still widely believed today but I think the actions of corporations demonstrate time and time again, that they will take advantage of the benefits of "headquartering" in America but in the end, they are after the markets wherever they may be. American citizens should always keep this in mind.

I can't wait to see the first gay divorce, who will be the one to get alimony?

 

They have already had divorces in the states that did allow marriage. It works about the same as other couples that divorce.

Someone needs to invent a Southern Superhero, fighting for INjustice then cries and whines when he doesn't get his way, you know, all the things that make up the South.

Its more than that, The moment these marriage licences are issued they have to show their true colours. No more talk about the definition of marriage the only way back is to tear up the marriage licences of happily marriage couples> That's a fight you don't come out of smelling nice.

I'm impressed at the level of back patting going on in this thread, as well as the sheer intolerance of certain groups of people. Just goes to show even a good cause can have its fair share of bigotry when everyone here resorts to calling people who disagree with them names and inferring they are somehow superior to them.

 

Complete disrespect for differing opinions, but hey I suppose that's the internet for you.

 

Imagine if the supreme court ruled in the opposite direction and banned same sex marriage. I'm sure statements like "This day was our 9/11" would be uttered by the LGBT community just as easily and not so heavily criticized. It's funny the double standards people have.

It's only really a vocal minority  that is better off being ignored as their time is limited and easily marginalized
