What a wonderful way to wake up yesterday, as the news went across every media outlet, The Supreme Court ruled on same sex marriage, it is now legal here in the US. There is little commentary that I can make that will do any justice to what has been written by those more professional in the field. So…
“In a landmark opinion, a divided Supreme Court on Friday ruled that same-sex couples can marry nationwide, establishing a new civil right and handing gay rights advocates a historic victory.
In the 5-4 ruling, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority with the four liberal justices. Each of the four conservative justices wrote their own dissent.
Nearly 46 years to the day after a riot at New York’s Stonewall Inn ushered in the modern gay rights movement, the decision could settle one of the major civil rights fights of this era. The language of Kennedy’s opinion spoke eloquently of the most fundamental values of family, love and liberty.
That last line really does it for me. Thank you. That was pulled from CNN – Supreme Court Rules On Same Sex Marriage
