Today, the Supreme Court of the United States made the historic decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide in a narrow 5-4 opinion. Men and women across the country are celebrating the moving words from Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion that “They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”

Are we sure Scalia is allowed a Supreme Court seat? He's a man-sized cockroach, right?
