Same-Sex Marriage Legalized Across America

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled that same-sex couples have a legal right to marriage… a topic which has garnered significant attention over the last decade.

Immediately, there was retaliation from conservative factions聽around the country. The Supreme Court decision itself was controversial with a narrow win (5-4 voting). Conservatives are often labeled聽as old, rich white people who are enemies of gay marriage. Well guess what? I’m a conservative and a firm believer in our nation’s founding doctrines. And this is exactly why I find today’s SCOTUS ruling one of the best civil rights acts in memorable history! 馃檪

Here’s a beautifully written and well-known clause from聽the Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

In a world full of so much dissension, I’m a proponent of anything聽that can bring happiness to the masses. Whether it’s faith or marriage, what right does another person or group have to take away an individual’s right to be happy? We should all rejoice that countless same-sex couples no longer have to veil their love nor receive anything short of equality compared to heterosexual couples.

Well done, legal system! 馃檪
