Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. Today, they have ruled that same-sex marriage is a Constitutional right in all fifty states. No state, from this moment forward, is allowed to ban same-sex marriage. I honestly thought this would never happen in my lifetime. I was wrong, and I am amazed and delighted.
Republican heads are today exploding all across this great land, especially here in Texas.
The ruling of the Court may be read here. Basically:
The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State.
The vote was, as expected, 5-4, with the four conservative members of the Court voting against equal marriage rights for gays and lesbians.
The ruling takes effect immediately.
