Thanks Cal for the link to the article and the analysis by Steve Kingstone. I have waited for this moment to happen and really never thought it would happen in my lifetime. It has been a long road since the Stonewall riots on June 28, 1969 and it will be a few more years before full equality is reach but I am thrilled that we have come this far. Read and tearfully noted.

I agree,'s been SO VERY LONG coming! But, when I think about how quickly public opinion has turned around---I'm hopeful! It's RIGHT. It's IMPORTANT. It's GOING TO HAPPEN!

I hope the court is definitive in its decision so we can put this all behind us regardless of outcome.

That, but they normally don't make sweeping rulings, focusing on narrow focus that while arcane can have wide spead consequence.

Best not forget this court is the same court that gave us...."Corporations are people."......Anything can happen with this Right leaning court.

It`s certainly time! I just hope they rule wisely and abandon the old prejudices.

What has the supreme court got to do with gay marriage. It is a bond between two people and has absolutely nothing to do with the 'supreme court'.

No, the court will just say that it is up to the states. If they don't, then some states may either nullify or secede. Whatever they decide, it will not solve anything.
