Breaking news: U.S. Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage

In a 5-4 opinion, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in an opinion released today.

Written by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court held that marriage is a fundamental right under the 14th amendment.

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. … [The challengers] ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law,” the concluding paragraph of the majority opinion states. “The Constitution grants them that right.”

Here’s the opinion, please share your reactions and thoughts below:
