President Obama hailed the recent Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage as a "victory for American democracy," and said his administration is still performing a "legal analysis" to determine how the change in federal law applies across states with differing statutes on same-sex marriage.

You should tell that to all the religious freaks who indoctrinate their children into believing their particular version of the fairytale.
And every poll ever done shows we ARE indeed changing people's minds. Remember the last state votes on marriage? Seems we changed a LOT of minds over the past few years.
You are confused and you are smart enough to see where. Parents can teach their children what they want, when the child is of age they can choose the path they want. When it's the government doing the indoctrination, that is a tyrantical move that would thrill Lenin, Hitler, Mao and Obama.

Teaching kids to treat everyone equally and with respect & dignity isn't indoctrination. It's teaching them to be decent human beings.

It would be unnecessary for the schools and/or govt if only the religious freaks would stop teaching their kids it's okay to hate & discriminate.

Nope, the SCOTUS declined to rule (for now) on whether or not states can define marriage as 1man/1woman. BIG difference. Gender discrimination has already been found unconstitutional in multiple cases going back to 1974.
There's SCOTUS precedent for state's defining marriage as male/female; case in point, Baker v. Nelson.

SCOTUS ruled the Ninth Circuits decision void. The majority notes, this jurisdictional restriction "ensures that we act as judges, and do not engage in policymaking properly left to elected representatives." Chief Justice Roberts notes, "Article III of the Constitution confines the judicial power of federal courts to deciding actual “Cases” or “Controversies.”§2."

Now that MN repealed their ban on same-sex couples marrying, Baker v Nelson is moot.

You're correct that the SCOTUS decision voided the 9th Circuit decision, but left in force the district court decision which actually was a much BROADER ruling declaring a basic constitutional right to marry for same-sex couples.

The next federal case which gets to the SCOTUS overturns all remaining state bans. Even the rabidly anti-gay Justice Scalia admitted as much, which is why the ONLY hope for the anti-gays is to prevent such a case from getting to the SCOTUS. I'm counting on the anti-gays such as yourself to be too stupid to realize they'll have to suck up losing another state (like Michigan) or an entire circuit (like the 9th) if they hope to keep the confederacy & plains states as bastions of bigotry.

If they are truely religious parents, they are teaching their children what the bible teaches and that is homosexuality is an obomanation before God. Being gay is not sin, having sexual action is, just like sex out of marriage is fornication. Sin is sin. Parents that want to teach there children that being gay is good can, those that are biblical do not have to bend to the wishes of the ungodly.

As you say, "there will be no time when a man will not be living in fear for his life".

Religious wars have ALWAYS caused people to live in fear.

Even today, the USA is AFRAID of being hurt again by religious freaks from the Middle East.

Seem that it is RELIGION that is purpetrating EVIL on this planet!

(Protestants against Catholics; Shiite against Sunni; and Semites against Anti-Semites)

Religion has been the cause of so many deaths on this planet.

Thousands of years of religion and still there IS NO PEACE on earth.

Like I said, religious freaks indoctrinate their children to hate & discriminate, just as they always done. In the past the target of their discrimination was blacks & Asians & Jews & women; not their favorite target is gays & lesbians.

Thankfully the majority of young adults have rejected the hate & discrimination taught by their parents and churches, which is by over 75% of those under age 40 now support marriage equality for same-sex couples.

Nice to know bigotry CAN die out.

Many fall short of the glory of God for sure pookie; however, just because someone says they are religious or goes to services for social reasons doesn't make them a christian. There is bigotry on our side and your side. Don't attack what you don't understand.
