I suspect the Supremes will order a stay as they did at the start of this recent bout of ban killings. I think they want to wait until all circuits hearing appeals have ruled before touching this themselves. They still need to see if there is a controversy that gives them jurisdiction. So far, there's not.

I will admit that I don't understand why the rest of the circuit is not covered by this ruling.

But meanwhile...hooray!

You are far from being in any sort of majority.

Longer relationships than yours have failed so don't break your arm patting yourself on the back.

Fact is, most Americans, if like me, couldn't care less about your "marriage." Just get TFO of our faces. We are so freaking tired of hearing your tales of woe.

As we couldn't care less about your "marriage". The difference being WE didn't try to ban YOUR "marriage".

Maybe if you anti-gays stopped trying to discriminate against us, we wouldn't have to be in your face.

I expect Chief Justice Roberts will grant a stay in the coming days.

I think the biggest question is whether Roberts takes the job upon himself, or if he consults the rest of the justices, as Sotomeyer did. The result won't change.

Here's a clue, kiddo, if you didn't care, you wouldn't comment.

Of course, if you supported the US Constitution and its guarantee of equal protection for all, you wouldn't oppose legal equality.

The real fact of the matter is that who someone else chooses to marry has between little and no impact upon your life.

If you understood it you'd have nothing to say. Hey, you already have nothing to say.

I didn't say I oppose legal equality and you're right, who marries whom has absolutely no impact on my life.

Like the illegals demanding rights reserved for citizens, I'm just tired of hearing about it.

I'll take that to mean you're finally admitting to being here strictly for the sake of being a troll.

Well, if you rightists didn't keep denying the gay community's right to equal protection under the law, you wouldn't have to. But you do, so you do. Too bad.
If you mean that expressing my opinion, much like yourself, makes me a troll, then most assuredly. Not finally admitting it... never denied it.

BTW, I haven't denied the gay community anything.
