Pride parades supercharged by court ruling on marriage

Historic. Emotional. Magical. Epic.
Those were of some of the superlatives offered as revelers nationwide marched Sunday in gay pride parades supercharged by the historic Supreme Court ruling extending marriage rights to same-sex couples in all 50 states.
In New York, Carina Ramirez, 21, a student who lives in the Bronx, has been to other gay pride parades, but none matched this moment.
"It does feel different, she said. "I feel people are going to go harder today because of the decision, even if it's raining."

Same-sex couples have a Constitutional right to marry, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday, ending decades of emotional and divisive wrangling over gay rights and echoing a transformational shift in American public attitudes.
President Barack Obama, whose personal stance has also changed dramatically from avowed opposition to staunch support of gay marriage, called the 5-4 ruling, “a victory for America” that shows “what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts: When all Americans are treated as equal we are all more free.”

For the past few years, L.G.B.T. Americans have suffered under disjointed and disparate laws in different states so that one’s marriage and family would be recognized in some states but not all states.
With the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, the march for marriage equality is complete. Love has won, and in acknowledging that same-sex relationships are just as special and real, America is a more perfect union for it.
Our nation was founded on the bedrock principle of equality under the law. From this day forward, with four words — “It is so ordered” — we can now say that in our country all love is created and respected as equal. What a country!

Two major Supreme Court rulings have reshuffled the GOP presidential primary, shooting domestic and social issues to the top of the debate and leaving the candidates to grapple with an increasingly liberal general electorate.
The rulings in favor of Obamacare subsidies and same-sex marriage sparked a flurry of responses from the White House hopefuls that ranged from forthright anger to carefully crafted messages of acceptance, providing some insight into the strategies the crowded field plans to employ on the campaign trail.
“It’s a conundrum,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “If a given GOP candidate takes too strong a position on same sex marriage to please the base and win a primary, they face a reckoning down the road when they have to win over independents or disaffected Democrats” in November.
