Important Quotes From the Supreme Court's Decision on Gay Marriage
on 26 June 2015
In a narrow five-to-four decision, the US Supreme Court voted to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states, marking a momentous decision in American equality. Justice Anthony Kennedy held the power of the swing vote and, on his way to securing a landmark majority vote, penned a 100+ page document detailing the importance of including same-sex couples in the constitutional right of matrimony, writing "The nature of marriage is that, through its enduring bond, two persons together can find other freedoms, such as expression, intimacy and spirituality. This is true for all persons, whatever their sexual orientation." Visit Mother Jones for more highlights.
