A decision that will impact each and every nation in some way or other and will bring smile into face of everyone who supports equality over anything, the Supreme Court has legalized same-sex marriage across the United States Friday in a closely divided ruling that will stand as a milestone in its 226-year history.
The justices ruled that states cannot deny gay men and lesbians the same marriage rights enjoyed for thousands of years by opposite-sex couples.
We are happy that now US citizens have been allowed to married irrespective of whether they are gay or lesbian or straight, we hope that Indian parliament passes the law that at least legalizes the existence of homosexuals.
Obama: ‘a victory for America’
The nation was “founded on a bedrock principle, we are all created equal,” he says. The decision reflects “the realities of changing times” and “the never ending quest to ensure those words ring true for every single American”, he says.
“The progress on this journey often comes in small increments, sometimes two steps forward, one step back, propelled by the persistent effort of dedicated citizens. And sometimes there are days like this, when that slow steady effort is rewarded with justice that arrives like a lightning bolt.”
“This ruling will strengthen all of our communities.
If we are truly created equal then truly the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. It is gratifying to see that principle enshriened into law by this decision. This ruling is a victory for Jim Obergefell and other plaintiffs n the case, it’s a victory for all the gay and lesbian couples who’ve fought so long for equal rights, and it’s a victory for their children whose families will now be treated equally, like any other.And this ruling is a victory for America. This ruling affirms what millions of Americans believe in their hearts: when all Americans are treated as equal we are more free.
For all our differences we are one people, stronger together than we could ever be alone.
