The Supreme Court has been considering several cases surrounding the controversial topic of gay marriage. Today, after much deliberation, the court has released its rulings on the cases.

The Defense of Marriage Act, the law barring the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages legalized by the states, is unconstitutional, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday by a 5-4 vote.

The Supreme Court has also ruled on Proposition 8, the measure in California banning gay marriage in the state. While the court sidestepped ruling on the issue of gay marriage nationwide, it seems to have referred to a lower court's finding, meaning that gay marriage would be legal once more in California. Of course, the decision is still being scoured and analyzed, so there may be something we're missing at the moment.

Homosexuals must feel pretty gay right now.

You can put a sign on a cow that says horse but that doesn't change the fact that it's still a cow. So called gay marriage isn't the same and it isn't equal. The purpose of marriage for the past 20,000 years has been the perpetuation of the race. Period. On the bright side states still have the right to define marriage and 38 have defined that between a man and a woman

I will probably get some flak for my opinion, but I am sick of groups wanting special treatment for being different then complaining when we do not treat them the same as every other group. This is not specifically about sex, gender, capability, race, etc.

You, whoever you are, whatever you choose to be, BE THAT. If that excludes you from certain rights, then that is what happens. If you want those rights, you change so that you get them... not whine and complain until everyone else says you can have it both ways.

I don't think people choose who they fall in love with.

Then how about this, you go down to Africa and give this same speech to the hundreds or thousands of people who are forced to live life a lie because there are no laws at least giving them the right to be human beings, as they would be brutally executed publicly in broad daylight, or even denied medication as they still see HIV and AIDS as a homosexual disease or virus.

This is a good thing in terms of civil rights and human rights, at least for Americans in California. Not coming at you, just wanted to point that out.

But this is not about getting special rights, it's about getting the same rights as everyone and being treated as equals.

How is it not?

They have chosen to have a relationship that is different from the written law... and now they want the same rights as that law.

The Lord knows I am not without sin but:

"If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives." (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

So yea you guys be happy about it.

May you all be forgiven.

Jesus brought with him a new covenent, so truthfully should probably just pray for them. Don't go killing ppl because of me.

Special treatment isn't overturning an unfair law. If it is, then man, the black Americans back in the 60's should have stopped fighting for those civil rights. Why did they deserve that special treatment? I mean, the law was that they didn't have those rights. What made them think they were so special?

Yeah, that's pretty much what you sound like right now.

O rly? That's how it is not.


Did someone say interracial marriage? Anyone? Yeah, laws do change.

While the bible may hold some guidance, it has been changed, translated, and reinterpreted some many times, over so many years.

Not for much longer they won't....I give it a decade before Mormons are marrying the same sex in Utah.

Change who you are to be allowed the same basic rights and treatments as everyone else?
