The Right of All Americans to Marry, Regardless of Sexual Orientation

The 2011 SCOTUS decision on free speech basically states "The First Amendment protects from tort liability a person who speaks about a public issue on a public sidewalk, even if that speech is "outrageous."

This of course protects our free speech as it protected the rights of the Phelps family to spew hate speech that is in poor taste.

It also likely fueled the flames for the protection of all American's right to marriage equality - a decision handed down just this year (2015, and well overdue) protecting the right of all American's to marry regardless of sexual orientation.
