    I still stand for Kim Davis and pray for her and all the people who are lost and going to Hell by good work or deed and our country heading down the road of judgement of God and the only way that God repent of this evil he about to do in this land if first of all if God people who called by his name and pray and humble those self please turn to Jesus Christ as your Savoir and Lord and do it today don’t wait till it to late.

  2. There is still so much work to do.

    1) There are still adults in the US who do not have the freedom to marry (or even simply be with) the person(s) they love, including many LGBT people.

    2) Other countries need help, including from the US, to move towards marriage equality.

    3) As covered in this article, marriages will need protection in legislatures, administrations, and courts. Even though a decision by the US Supreme Court should settle the matter in the US, there are still going to be attacks, foot-dragging, noncompliance, and all sorts of ways marriages will be denied equal treatment. Many people can testify that having specific civil rights legislation in place has not ensured everyone has their rights; vigilance is needed.

    4) Supreme Court decisions have been reversed before. A 5-4 decision isn’t a safe as we’d like to believe. A new President will be elected in 2016. Will the new President make the right appointments to the Court and lower courts?

    5) We need a federal Marriage Equality Amendment.

    Let’s keep going until every adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, or religion is free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage (and any of those without the others) with any and all consenting adults, without fear of prosecution, bullying, or discrimination.
