The Supreme Court has been busy making America awesome, not only did they uphold subsidies they also declared same-sex couples have a right to marriage. Generally almost all of their recent decisions have fought back against discrimination, repression of freedom speech, repression of freedom of religion, and repression of individual liberty. It hasn’t seemed to matter how words have been twisted, SCOTUS seems to be ruling in favor of real American values and not tricky half-truths that only appear American when slanted a certain way. That being said there are a few equally as important cases for the judges to rule on that will also affect the future of America.
“It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage,” Justice Kennedy said of the couples challenging state bans on same-sex 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.”
