His post follows a long-sought victory for the gay rights movement. The  Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote on Friday, June 26  that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.

“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Justice Anthony M.

In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”
