SCOTUS 5-4: Marriage Equality in the US!

The Supreme Court of the United States today gave us their decision in the case of Obergefell et al. v. Hodges, Director, Ohio Department of Health, et al.

With a 5-4 majority decided, for a freedom to marry nationwide in the United States. (Kennedy delivered the opinion of the Court, in which Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan, joined. Chief Justice Roberts filed a dissenting opinion as did Scalia, Thomas and Alito, the latter three also filing opinions in which one or more of the other dissenters joined.)

You can read the complete decision here: http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/14pdf/14-556_3204.pdf.

Happy Pride everyone and especially my sisters and brothers in the United States! The second largest democracy in the world has now accepted same-sex marriage!

Let's celebrate!
