The following is an informal summary of the ruling.

Dude. Even though this state has a large number of bigoted twits who want to keep the gays out of your marriage, it's still fucking unconstitutional, and you can go shove beans up your nose. Let me compare you to people who wanted to keep slavery and segregation around, and keep women from voting.

If you want to discriminate against a group, your ducks has better be very well in a row, and we're going to go right on down and show you where your ducks just ain't.

Same-sex couples can't reproduce? Shove that up your nose. Same-sex couples are adult humans who want to get civilly hitched, and this is about getting hitched, not about getting knocked up.

You want to claim that this is about denying marriage to same-sex couples, not about discriminating against gays and lesbians? Shove that up your nose too. Who the fuck else is going to want to get a same-sex marriage?

Gays and lesbians get discriminated against, despite being productive members of society. You can shove your "ex-gay" therapy up your nose too, because anyone with more brains than a turnip can see that it hurts more than it helps. Despite it being fucking illegal to discriminate in some cases, guess what, it still happens.

Traditional marriage is traditional. If you can't think up a better argument than that circular one, you can bite me.

For the childrens! Um, while we see that you claim that a mother and a father are the best, but let's take a look at REALITY, where all kids DON'T HAVE THIS.

How about no. Deadbeat parents, child molesters, and murderers can still get hitched. Let's think critically about this for a moment. If we don't deny marriage to these people, why again are we denying it to a group that's, see above, productive members of society?

Same-sex couples are still RAISING kids, without being married. Um. So you want to deny the benefit of having MARRIED parents to these kids, while claiming that all kids should have married parents? Bite me.

Lots of same-sex couples don't have kids. Opposite-sex couples who don't have kids can get married. Bite me.

Exactly how is same-sex couples getting married going to stop opposite-sex couples from getting themselves knocked up?!

Exactly how is same-sex couples getting married going to make opposite-sex couples stop getting married or raise the opposite-sex divorce rate?!

It would save the government money if less people got married. Very much so. But why stop at excluding the queers when you could also exclude religions you don't like or races you don't like? Bite me.

"The sanctity of religious marriage is threatened! Our world is crumbling around us!" ...uh, have you read the marriage law? Your religion can define "marriage" all it wants to. This law is about civil marriage. Bite me.

In conclusion: denying same-sex marriage to gays and lesbians is discriminatory, wrong, and above all, unconstitutional. Get hitched, guys and gals. And those opposed? Bite me.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
