I’m not surprised by the Supreme Court’s ruling today. It is in line with how the lower courts have been trending for years. My nonpartisan opinion remains the same: Marriage ought to be a private enterprise engaged in without government interference.
Regardless of whether you are excited or dismayed by the Court’s decision today, the government (federal/state/local) should never have been given a role in the social institution of marriage to begin with.
We reap what our forefathers have sown. Even so, our great grandchildren will reap what we have sown.
Regardless, the world is not going to end because of this decision.
