The United States Now Has Marriage Equality In All 50 States With Supreme Court Ruling
The Supreme Court of the United States has announced this morning a decision that homosexual couples must have the same legal access to marriage as heterosexuals do.
Same-sex marriage is now legal across the United States. The name of the case is Obgerfell et. al v. Hodges, Director, Ohio Department of Health, et al.
Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his opinion, “It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
Not one Republican presidential candidate supports this decision.
