The Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act in a 5-4 decision. The court also ruled that same-sex marriage will be available in California, at least where court clerks take the position that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. This post will be updated as we gather more reactions.
This is a Roe v. Wade-type decision, with massive implications for the future. And, for religious liberty.

Why shouldn't minors wishing to marry be afforded the same "equality" rights as same-sex couples?

My thoughts on the SCOTUS ruling that determined that same sex marriage is okay: "Jesus wept."

The DOMA ruling has now made the normalization of polygamy, pedophilia, incest and bestiality inevitable. Matter of time.

Make no mistake: Justice Kennedy's majority opinion in the DOMA case takes the entire nation right to the brink of legal same-sex marriage,.

I have said for years that the #gaymarriage debate is over. It is an inevitability.
