Lawyers representing the businesses said they would file a brief in the case.

Companies including Microsoft Corp, Google Inc , Starbucks Corp and Pfizer Inc are among those that joined the brief. Others included Aetna Inc , Amazon.com , Inc and Citigroup Inc. Thomson Reuters Corp is another signatory. The Reuters news agency is part of Thomson Reuters.

Psssst, hey Dumbo. Did you know that I am one who says Gay Marriage Laws should be passed? They won't change a damned thing in my life, in your life, or in your neighbor's life. This is a non-issue.

Sorry to burst your bubble there, little boy. Try to stick with the topics you know something about now, OK?

How about minimum wage. You know all about that.
