SAME-SEX MARRIAGE: Now Available in the US

Nine years after Canada legalized same-sex marriage, the Supreme Court of the US handed down a ruling on June 26, 2015 granting the right for same-sex couples to marry in all 50 states.  The LGBT media circuit has been overwhelmed with stories over the last decade focusing on individual states allowing gay marriage but it was never on a national scale. Queer critics of this decision see it as the possible end of popularized gay activism, as the gay marriage movement has received the most attention of any queer-related cause in recent history.

Its important to note that the decision wasn’t unanimous, it was won in a 5-4 vote.  Here are some of the comments made by the folks against it.
