Which site has the main statement of each of the latest Supreme Court justices re. gay marriage?

Asked by flo (12974points) June 30th, 2015

Re. June 26/2015’s ruling, what main statements, paraphrased or not, are attributed to each one on of the justices?
For eg. Justice Clarence Thomas said: The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.

He’s concentrating on the word “dignity”. And although I do not agree with him, I see his point. It is, however, completely irrelevant. The issue was not about dignity, but about civil liberties and equal protection under the law.

Is there a site that has each one’s main statement?

To that I can only say
“Human dignity shall be inviolable. To respect and protect it shall be the duty of all state authority.” – Article 1 of the German constitution,

My Supreme Court contacts told me a few days ago of this:

Justices Thomas and Alito Question Same-Sex Marriage Precedent
The justices, who dissented from the 2015 decision establishing a right to same-sex marriage, said it had cast “people of good will as bigots.”
