Explosions on the Right; Marriage Edition

Justice Kennedy the Supreme Court declared Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States.
From what I saw at ScotusBlog, 60% of the opinion was written the dissenters. I've read hardly anything of it, but the first few sentences of Scalia's dissent reads like something that could have been written by a pro-slavery judge in the 1840s.

The GOP: Wrong Side of History(tm). Smarter heads in the party are probably eager to put this issue behind them, but don't count on the firebrands to let that happen.

And now, according to Ted Cruz, you're going to oppress me. I'm not quite sure how you're going to oppress me, but Ted Cruz insists, insists I say, that gay people marrying is going to oppress straight penguins like me. Maybe married gay people emit, like, rainbow beams of gayness or something? Curious penguins are... baffled.

Or maybe, just maybe, gay people will get married and my life will continue on with no changes as a result. Naw, that couldn't be it, otherwise the tighty righties wouldn't have their tighty whities in a knot, right?

Gays getting married really sets us all free.

Maybe next week you'll say something that shows a little common sense.

Moe, isn't it nice just to be able to say that? That's a freedom, if you weren't able to say that Thursday, but you can today, you would be more free, right?

Moe, when you can rationally explain how gay marriage has an effect on straight people, get back to me. Please answer without any references to Jesus or the Bible.

Somehow I suspect that if Big Government was telling Moe that he could not marry the consenting adult of his choice, Moe would be screaming bloody murder about "Oppression! Tyranny!". Funny how he's just fine with telling *other* people who they can marry, but if someone tried to tell *him* who he can marry, he'd be raising holy hell and ranting about "tyranny!".

As he should. As gays should have, when Big Government was telling *them* who they could marry.

But apparently Moe is fine with tyranny, as long as it's tyranny against people he finds squicky and icky, like our proprietress here at this blog. At which point I am baffled -- why does Moe hang around, when quite clearly he hates gay people and our proprietress is, well, gay? There's something sorta hinky about a person who hangs around with people he professes to hate, kinda S&M'ish now that I think about it. Ick!

BadTux,

Yes, everyone can now suffer the benefits of divorce equally.

Seems like the only real change save for a few radifundi taking
off like a minuteman missile.

And tomorrow I go to work just like last week.

Eck!
