    4. Obama called the decision "a victory for America" and said it "affirms what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts."

      A victory for America, how can it be a victory if there are still people who don't believe in gay marriage and that it should be legal?

    5. "When all Americans are treated equal, we are all more free,"

      What is meant by saying that we are more free? We should have been free.

      Even thou this happen will the people of the court still look at gays differently, will gays feel uncomfortable?

    2. The decision upholds the Fourteenth Amendment that requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out of state, according to the court document.

      This would is saying that gay marriage goes right along with the fourteenth amendment which states that citizens have rights and that we all have equal protection of the laws.

    3. The Supreme Court on Friday legalized same-sex marriage in the United States. In the 5-4 landmark decision, the majority of justices ruled that states must license same-sex marriages and also recognize gay marriages performed legally in other states.

      This would be considered good because it say that they must license the same sex marriage. So therefore it is not hurting anyone.

    1. If gay marriage increases and heterosexual marriage decreases, society will be harmed.

      If gay marriage increase the rate of children being adopted with increase because all gay couple want kids no matter how they have them.

    2. So, when marriage is redefined, the society is dramatically affected.

      How can this be so when marriage is only between two people, no one else should be trying to get in the way of someone else's marriage. How is the society dramatically affected by this?

    3. There are different kinds of harm: physical, emotional, spiritual, financial, etc.

      If these are the different types of harm why does gay marriage harm everyone if it isn't destroying anything they do.

    1. "By affirming the rights of all loving couples to commit to each other with the full weight of legal protection that marriage affords, the Supreme Court has affirmed a founding principle that we must all continue to strive for: a more perfect union."

      Why is everyone so obsessed with being a perfect union what so special about it?

    2. Here, a group of men hug outside New York's Stonewall Inn, the site of the famous 1969 Stonewall Riots, an event many people look to as the start of the modern LGBT rights movement.

    3. same-sex couples should be able to exercise the right to marry in all states, people in the Court's public gallery broke into smiles and some wiped tears from their eyes.

    4. "Their hope," Kennedy wrote, "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."

      This is true because if someone is gay and gay marriage was completely illegal then how can people expect that someone to not be lonely if they want to be with the same sex and its a problem.

    5. "No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family," Kennedy wrote. "In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were."

      Marriage should be the most important thing in the world because that person is able to be with the one they love and can be happy with that special someone.

    1. "there is not yet a legal requirement for officials to issue marriage licenses or perform marriages for same-sex couples in Louisiana."

      How is this so when gay marriage is legal so how can a state decide on being able to perform marriages for same-sex couples.

    2. "Friday, the United States Supreme Court again ignored the text and spirit of the Constitution to manufacture a right that simply does not exist. In so doing, the court weakened itself and weakened the rule of law

      What is meant when they say "Constitution to manufacture a right that simply does not exist." How can this weaken us.

    1. Same-sex couples should have access to the same benefits enjoyed by heterosexual married couples.

      What will happen if the courts decides to not let gay couples have the same benefits or take them away from them? Are they allowed to do that after its legal? Will things like ( If they were to banned gay marriage will they have to make the couples that are married get a divorce or worse) make them not banned it?

    2. Legalizing gay marriage will not harm the institution of marriage, and same-sex marriages may even be more stable than heterosexual marriages.

      Being able to legalize gay marriage will most likely help the world with the heterosexual marriages. Its will decrease the rate of divorces and abortions rates.

    3. Denying some people the option to marry is discriminatory and creates a second class of citizens.

      Many people are not allowing the same sex to be together because of the way they feel about it, and that is making them seem like a second class citizens. A second class citizens is someone who does not agree with everyone else because they have their own opinions towards this topic.

    1. That is unnecessary when the legal and moral imperative for same-sex marriage has been so plainly demonstrated, and it is absurd to leave the state bans still intact in some sort of legal limbo.

      How can gays be able to be who they are but still have to be treated a different way when it comes to marriage?

    2. But despite the steady rise in acceptance of same-sex marriage across the country, millions of gay and lesbian couples are still denied adequate legal protection.

      I dont understand how they allow gay marriage but will not protect them the same as a regular marriage. What is the difference if they both are legal?

    3. Human or animal feces infected with E. coli sometimes get into lakes, pools, and water supplies. People can become infected when a contaminated city or town water supply has not been properly treated with chlorine or when people accidentally swallow contaminated water while swimming in a lake, pool, or irrigation canal.

      People can get infected from water and other cities. Its dangerous because we allow our kids to go in water all the time and we don't think nothing big of it.

    1. Thousands of schools across the U.S. rushed last year to stop feeding their students meat that contained the ammonia-treated beef, known by industry as lean finely textured beef.

      Why speak so highly of the pink slime being done and over with but then bring it back into the schools. It's no purpose of doing that.

    2. Kids are going back to school and so is the ground beef filler dubbed “pink slime.”

      This isn't good because many student in society likes to eat meat and if the schools meat have pink slime its disgusting. Pink slime in the foods we eat are very nasty.
