Werd ich zum Augenblicke sagen, "Verweile doch! Du bist so schön..."

Polling shows a majority of Americans favor preserving rights to marry whom one wishes, regardless of the person’s sex, gender, race or ethnicity...

Unfortunately, the current makeup of the Supreme Court doesn't care about majorities.

As I understand our USA legal system, some sort of (new, since the 2015 ruling) restriction on SSM only would have to be made a law somewhere in the USA (maybe as low level as a City Ordinance) and would have to go all the way thru the State and Federal court system all the way up to the Supreme Court and be upheld.

Then other SSM only restrictions/laws would likely be tried, just to see what the Supreme Court would uphold.

(maybe a lawyer here on UBF could expand on this scenario)

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. - Karl R. Popper

Like Nixon did when taking lessons from the original Deep Throat.

More from the Republican party about what marriages is about (it's okay if it's violent, as long as it's heterosexual):
