It’s a SCOTUS-palooza…where do you stand?

Fox News correspondent Shannon Bream read the decision on the air as the crowd outside the Court cheered:
The scene outside the Supreme Court right now is kind of a circus:

Because it’s 2015, activists, politicians, and pundits alike have stormed the internet with their concurring and dissenting opinions:
Many, of course, took to Twitter to celebrate the ruling:

One day we will tell our kids and grandkids about a time that used to be when gays couldn't marry. Today is that day. #SCOTUS

Others expressed concerns not just over the ruling as it relates to marriage, but the implications for 10th Amendment sovereignty:

You're beyond naive if you do not believe churches will be forced against their beliefs to fall in line.

So, we don’t give a crap about states’ rights anymore, eh, #SCOTUS?

The SCOTUS ruling today sets up full restriction of religious rights. The statists are in their final match to rid America of God.

After the lawless ACA ruling, the Supreme Court continues to take away each state's right to make its own decisions. #SCOTUSMarriage

After #SCOTUS decision I'm more worried about churches retaining freedom to practice their faith & not perform marriages which violate that.

#SCOTUS confirms that the individual has no place in making decisions for themselves. Group think is now law.

People made fun of me for putting polygamy in the <5 years window. Read Kennedy and you won’t. Also, far less radical than SSM, fwiw.
