In his novel, Animal Farm, George Orwell said: "Everyone is equal but some are more equal than others." That, thankfully, is no longer true in the USA.
The 4th Amendment - equal rights and protection under the law now extends to an additional 10% of the American public? You have to wonder what is wrong with Chief Justice John Roberts, who's angry protest included "Who do we think we are?"
Well, who are you? The Chief Justice of the judicial body who is responsible for upholding the constitution for ALL Americans? Who is forced to make those awful choices like black people are human beings and gay people have rights? Who is supposed to honor the Constitution above the prejudice you try to peddle as your religious beliefs/God's will?
Dear Justice Roberts: grow the fuck up, be a human being, and do the job you're paid to do.
America stands for justice, respect for the individual, non-conformity, freedom from religious bigotry, and the rights of ALL human beings to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
Jefferson wrote into the constitution a remarkable phrase: "the pursuit of happiness." And that's what marriage equality is, pure and simple. I'm happy to finally see my gay brothers and sister finally have a full measure of citizenship across all fifty states. Obama was right—we are a stronger nation when everyone has the same rights and is treated equally under the law.
Justice Roberts, Justice Thomas, Justice Alito, Justice Scalia, GOP presidential candidates, and vocal members of the Church. Stop embarrassing the majority of people in this country by flinging your hate like manure. Stop trying to turn our country into Russia or Iran.
