"Once you get married lawfully in one state, another state cannot summarily take your marriage away, because the right to remain married is properly recognized as a fundamental liberty interest protected by the Due Process Clause of the United States Constitution. Moreover, ... by treating lawful same-sex marriages differently than it treats lawful opposite sex marriages ... , Ohio law, as applied to these Plaintiffs, violates the United States Constitution's guarantee of equal protection." Citing Cleburne (473 US 432, 1985), the court underlined in its ruling: "The electorate cannot order a violation of the Due Process or Equal Protection Clauses by referendum or otherwise, just as the state may not avoid their application by deferring to the wishes or objections of its citizens." These precise and prescient words were completely lost on J. Sutton who, writing for the 6CA's panel majority in review of the trial court's decision, found that there is no "US Constitutional right to same-*** marriage". J. Sutton's ruling is "obviously wrong", as described by J. Daughtrey's dissent. It will be easily overturned by a clear majority of the US Supreme Court, alongside the DeBoer ruling, come June 2015. The vote will be at least 6, possibly 7 justices, judging by their refusal to issue a stay in Marie v. Moser and Brenner v. Armstrong."

Opposed:
"Yeah, but, Jesus."
