Well, if she's been declared SP, then they also believe they're fucking up their progress on the Bridge just by being physically near her. There are many layers to the brainwashing, it's not just physical intimidation.

Hell, that happens half the time anyway.

So let me make sure I have this right... you made a split second decision to save your mother from your father by shooting him in the side with a fucking .44 while he was holding her as a shield?

That's... I don't know, man. I've never heard of anything like that. You should be a cop or something.

Here's a link to the full decision as well as the dissents for anyone who wants to read it (PDF). The paragraph in question is on page 33.

No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.

The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.

It is so ordered.
