Another Progressive Victory Against Majority Rule

As many are pointing out this is a repeat of Roe v. Wade (1973).  A majority of the Court decided that the 14th Amendment requires SSM, in spite of no legislative history in support because it makes them feel good to overturn majority will.
 “MARRIAGE RESPONDS TO THE UNIVERSAL FEAR THAT A LONELY PERSON MIGHT CALL OUT ONLY TO FIND NO ONE THERE.”
 So why not allow marriage to 9-year-olds?     Good enough for Mohammed!  And Roe v. Wade  was such a wonderful effect on American politics.  The difference is that Christianity is pretty much dead in America because so many kids learned by example to forgive your enemies, but not your spouse.

As this comment at Instapundit points out:
Adopting a dog from the pound responds to the universal fear that a lonely person might call out only to find no one there.

Look, the line applies to marriage, and it's lovely, in its way. It also has nothing to do with constitutional law. And it also explains why no-fault divorce is not viewed as the social disaster it has become.

and:

I'm lonely, even though I'm not gay. I demand the right to marry whomever I want. Whether or not she's willing is irrelevant, because I have the right not to be lonely.

The more consequential change is the initial step toward raising sexual orientation to the same protected class status as race.
