Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. 644 (2015) (/ˈoʊbərɡəfɛl/ OH-bər-gə-fel), is a landmark civil rights case in which the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the fundamental right to marry is guaranteed to same-sex couples by both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The 5–4 ruling requires all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and the Insular Areas to perform and recognize the marriages of same-sex couples on the same terms and conditions as the marriages of opposite-sex couples, with all the accompanying rights and responsibilities.
The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex, and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State. United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit reversed. Baker v. Nelson overturned.
Who has the right to tell someone who they can love? Who has the right to tell someone who they can marry? In today’s current situation of economical failure and the morale of the United States being at an all time low, is stripping the right to love and marry the right thing to do? It is never the right thing to do! There is never a time or a place to take away someone’s right to love and be loved.
Pushing and enforcing religious beliefs in governmental decision making is also something that should never be happening. Decisions on uniting a family, a marriage, or a bond between two should not be discriminated against by religious or hateful individuals. It’s kind of like a surgeon or an airplane pilot going to work drunk, on purpose. There will never be a good outcome.
Look at Justice Thomas. His marriage was illegal back in the 1960s. Should we go back and overturn his right to love and marry?
The answer is no. We shouldn’t overturn his right to marry, just like Marriage Equality should not be overturned. Two people loving and marrying each other does not affect anyone but the ones that are loving and saying “I do.”
The power hungry anti-marriage equality crowd cannot get control of the situation, so they want to end the situation. We cannot let that happen!!!
Please sign this petition & tell SCOTUS:
MARRIAGE EQUALITY MUST STAY AND THEY CANNOT OVERTURN OBERGEFELL V. HODGES!
