Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage. Rainbows, Rainbows, Rainbows Everywhere

Are you gay? Well, today’s your lucky day. You are now deemed fit to legally enter into a union of holy matrimony. The Supreme Court voted 5-4 in favor of allowing same sex marriages. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote of the decision:

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

You know, like Voltron. Pieces come together to form a greater entity.

“…Their hope 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.”

Let’s not treat gays like Quasimodo. Instead, let’s welcome them into the crappy party that is marriage. Loneliness in marriage doesn’t exist? HA!

Of course, there were four haters on the bench that voted against allowing guy on guy and girl on girl marriage action. Chief Justice Roberts wrote:

“Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal. Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”

Consti-what?

President Obama tweeted out his support for the decision, writing “Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins”

The White House also tweeted out a rainbow colored White House to mark the momentous occasion:

Meanwhile, the reaction of gays and lesbians? It can be summed up by the video below.
