Obergefell v. Hodges on Friday. All of my Gay friends can now enjoy the LONG LIST of rights and privileges that Dr Desert Flower and I have enjoyed for the last 28 years, if they find the love of their lives and want to get married as well. Thank you. You joined your 4 reasonable SCOTUS colleagues in making the right decision, and you worded your majority opinion so eloquently.
The hyperbolic fit throwing from the religious right - and their ridiculous predictions of being "forced" to act against their faith, or to "go out of business" as Huckabee said on This Week with Snuffleupagus - is amusingly stupid. No chicken little, the sky is not falling, but legal barriers to basic rights are.
Thanks Justice Kennedy.
