Only moments ago the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage was officially legal in the United States. The reactions to this ordeal are absolutely astonishing and overwhelming to all sides that both approve and despite the decision made by the Justices.
The decision is a historic victory for gay rights activists who have fought for years in the lower courts. Thirty-seven states and the District of Columbia already recognize marriage equality. The remaining 13 states ban these unions, even as public support has reached record levels nationwide.
The justices found that under the 14th Amendment, states must issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and recognize same-sex unions that were legally performed in other states. Justice Anthony Kennedy delivered the majority opinion and was joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor.
This decision has made history as one of the most controversial subjects to ever come to the Supreme Court! We are witnessing history in the making. We have all been a part of something that will go down in the history books to come that the United States Supreme Court finally did some good in a time of chaos.
