Look at their faces. It's like they've won the lottery, but it's the smallest jackpot they've ever won. How can these people can celebrate such a decision let alone in the name of God?

It's sad that this bigotry still exists, never mind being treated as intellectual discourse in the news today. It's become a game of us-versus them where people pick sides and battle it like a team sport. We've seen time and time again that we can't let the majority vote for rights on minorities because it winds up like two wolves and a sheep discussing what should be for dinner. This needs to go all the way up to the top and no supreme court judge in good faith can say that this isn't a violation of the constitution.
Half of Maine is left wondering what the hell is up with their state right now. I'm left wondering why the he hell the government has a say in who I can marry.
