The Supreme Court voted 5-4 in favor of gay marriage.
Four justices dissented. Their dissents show the constitutional theory behind their opposition. All four think the court overstepped its reach.
“This Court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be,” Chief Justice John Roberts said.
