The 5th Amendment to the Constitution, part of our Bill of Rights, reads, "No person shall be...deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." The Supreme Court has spoken. Why are there opposing views - except by people pushing an American agenda? We've heard enough of those! As to people "supporting traditional marriage," they haven't lost anything except perhaps some ostensible authority to bully those not eligible to join their ranks.
With the 4th of July upon is, it's good to remember part of our Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." An inalienable Right is one that you cannot be deprived of *without due process.*
So, yes, the subject is closed to further debate. We no more want to hear the deranged rants of haters, whether they belong to the KKK or "support traditional marriage." Time to love and move on.
