Hate loses nail-biter, 5-4

Love conquers all, even the Supreme Court
In a welcome surprise, Justice Kennedy sided with the four progressive justices to overturn hate, inequality and discrimination in regards to gay marriage.

It's a long time coming for the gay community and for this country.

Of course, this isn't going to end discrimination or hatred against homosexuals. Far from it. Just check out the hate comments after the main story on the Wall Street Journal website and others.

But, it now means the federal government no longer embraces inequality with respect to gay marriage.

This is what our vaunted Constitution sets forth in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.

Twelve states have already legalized gay marriage, with California being the 13th after today's ruling to let a lower court decision overturning Prop. 8 stand as the law of the Golden State.

More states, including Oregon, will legalize gay marriage in the coming years.

This is a mark of an evolving nation.

The decisions today do not affect any religion's definition of marriage being between one man and one woman.

The rulings do not affect any heterosexual marriage in this country. If anyone feels that their marriage is being mocked by these rulings, they have obviously done something to mock their own marriage, because these rulings do no such thing.

The world will not stop rotating. Heterosexual marriages will continue and the population will continue to explode. As God intended, of course.

Still, you have to wonder about the four justices (Roberts, Scalia, Alito and Thomas) who decided to uphold hate as an American standard.

These are the same type of justices who would've upheld slavery or not allowed women the right to vote.

Clearly, they're on the wrong side of history. Thank God.
