Doug N: Here's the fun part... the SCOTUS can only rule of a law is constitutional, or not. The SCOTUS can make legislation from the bench. So, basically the SCOTUS ruling was the laws in question before them are unconstitutional, and need to be rewritten to become constitutional. So, let's say the state of New York passes a law that says you can't drive a Ford truck in New York. I drive through their great state, and get arrested for my choice of trucks. So, I take it to the SCOTUS, and argue for my right to choose which truck I want to buy. If the SCOTUS rules that I can own the truck of my choice, then New Yorks law has to be rewritten. If SCOTUS rules the law constitutional, then I have to pay all fines and costs, and the law sticks. SCOTUS ruled the gay marriage bans unconstitutional. Not one word of the legality of gay marriage. Or if I even have to acknowledge a gay marriage. It's simple. If the federal government wants a law legalizing gay marriage, it must go through congress, and signed by a sitting POTUS. Until then, the ruling is nothing but blathering of pompous windbags.
