Same-sex marriage: A potential Supreme Court blockbuster

Washington (CNN) - Supreme Court justices heard an hour and 20 minutes of arguments Tuesday in the first of two cases that could reshape nothing less than how America defines marriage. Outside the historic court building, activists on both sides of the issue rallied.

"We are not asking for anything more than our neighbors, friends and family, but certainly expect no less," said Todd Bluntworth, who spoke with his husband and their two children to a crowd of supporters hoping for a historic ruling from the Supreme Court striking down laws banning same-sex marriage.

    Opponents of gay marriage need to come up with a better argument than "it's not traditional." They need a legal argument, not an arbitrary assertion of of their sense morality. Their arguments go against the 1st Amendment's "pursuit of happiness."

    "its not traditional" AS WELL AS "the bible blah blah blah" They have no grounds other than their opinions of normalcy and their sheepish devotion (and misrepresentation) of a book
