The Supreme Court of the United States has recently made same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. This decision has left a huge majority of Americans exuberant and thrilled, while others (non-supporters of same-sex marriage) sulk and lick their wounds. I personally support the Supreme Court’s decision 450 percent of the way.
I believe that marriage is a basic right that should be guaranteed to all citizens without any jurisdictions. Marriage is often thought of as a religious concept (defined by most religions as one man and one woman), which is why many religious people dislike same-sex marriage.
Despite the religious controversy on the subject, it should not affect our laws like it has for so many centuries. America is a land of free religion and it practices “separation of church and state” therefore religious beliefs should never affect the laws we make for our country.
This Supreme Court decision, by giving a great community of people the equality they deserve as American citizens, has made America more righteous and moral. I am personally all for a happier, more unified, and more justified America and this Supreme Court decision seems to have made that happen (concerning the majority of Americans).
Also, now that “same-sex” marriage is legal (just like any other “traditional” marriage), we should just refer to it all as one type of marriage (without any labels on it) to reduce the differences between the LGBT community and others. Marriage is about love and love doesn’t need labels.
Congratulations to the LGBT community on this achievement in civil rights. Love wins, love will always win.
