On Friday, June 26, 2015 history was made. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the American Constitution requires same-sex couples to get married no matter what state they live in.
Justice Anthony Kennedy who voted in favor of the ruling states, “They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.” He goes on to say that, “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were.”
While there are people everywhere celebrating the Supreme Court ruling, others are not happy about it and feel as though it violates states’ rights.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal says that, “The Supreme Court decision today conveniently and not surprisingly follows public opinion polls, and tramples on states’ right that were once protected by the 10th Amendment of the Constitution. Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that.”
