Many are rejoicing and many more are lamenting as the SCOTUS has now made it so that all states must accept gay marriage. As the old saying goes..."It is now the law of the land."
For some it is seen as totalitarianism that is coming down on Christians. Others see it as a great awakening of the nation after a long civil rights battle.

America needs to be brought back to its founding principals. America needs to wake up. Otherwise, it will be too late.
