Orrin was right and all the self proclaimed constitionalist were wrong. Let freedom ring.

Sanity, fairness, inclusion, acceptance, tolerance and --oh YEAH! The LAW-- prevail.
Now we can quit wasting tax money to fight an unwinnable battle.
God Bless the Court for making the correct decision.

Great news!

Freedom rides again!!

Logan, UT

Great news for Utahans!

But I predict people like RedShirt or wrz are going to cry foul, claiming active judges again.

Too bad. One nation, under a few judges, with liberty and justice for a few special interests.

Looks like we have another made up constitutional right. I love how they just keep popping out of thin air. The integrity of the legal system takes another hit.

My congratulations to my Gay and Lesbian friends in Utah. It was almost exactly a year ago to the day that the decision of the Supreme Court allowed marriage equality to resume in California. That day will be coming soon as well.

Great day for equality! The endless streak of victories for the LGBT community continues. All rulings so far have been for have been in favor equal rights. This is just another major step.

Someday soon we will look back and wonder why anyone was ever against two adults in love wanting to establish a permanent committed relationship in marriage regardless of the gender.

And so it begins...

Annnnd, start up the wailing and gnashing of teeth. But seriously, i'm really excited for my gay friends out there who want to get married. For years you've been subjected to religious bigotry towards who they are. While we can't force people to change their minds, finally the courts are recognizing that these religious views should not be wielded against gay people by the government. If your religion or personal views make you hate gay people, go ahead and hate. But your hate should not be the law.

Time to end the hate..

Indiana's ban was also struck down today. That makes 16 federal judges in a row, with zero ruling against.

Its too bad that this courts decision seems to allow adoption of children who otherwise would have had a mother and a father.

And this is a surprise ruling because?

Sorry folks but the days of discrimination ended long ago.

Happy to see the New Day!

Layton, UT

Well, I knew this was coming. Hopefully, the Supreme Court will overturn it. I was just reading Isaiah last night. Bad news for any immorality. Of course, I know many people on this board aren't religious so quoting scripture won't help convince them that gay marriage is wrong. I guess I'll do what I always do when something is made acceptable by law which I believe violates the Laws of God. Ignore it. Very sad day for our country. Blue had a quote from Martin Luther King Jr. Interesting, but I sincerely doubt he would approve of gay marriage.

Logan, UT

For those who believe 14th Amendment has nothing to do with marriage equality, read the decision:

"We hold that the 14th Amendment protects the fundamental right to marry, establish a family, raise children, and enjoy the full protection of a state’s marital laws," according to the decision posted on the court's website. "A state may not deny the issuance of a marriage license to two persons, or refuse to recognize their marriage, based solely upon the sex of the persons in the marriage union.
