How the Tech World is Celebrating the Same-Sex Marriage Decision

Browse This Page

After a long and tiring struggle, US Supreme Court has finally ruled that same-sex couples can marry nationwide, marking the significant event in the history books. This event took place a little over a decade after Massachusetts became the first state in the US to legalize gay marriage.

The Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote on Friday that the American Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. Along with the rest of the world, tech houses were ecstatic and quickly celebrated the decision by the use of social media. Take a look:

The White House’s Facebook account now has a profile picture in which the building itself is all the colors of the spectrum.

Let’s start with the leader of the free world, President Barack Obama:

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook, who came out to the world recently, tweeted:

Twitter itself called Friday a “monumental day for equal rights” and encouraged people to use a pair of Twitter emojis that included the rainbow flag, a symbol of the gay community.

Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella said the decision marked “a historic moment.”

Google and YouTube played their part as well in celebrating this historic event. Google included a subdued note reading, “YouTube and Google are proud to celebrate marriage equality. #ProudtoLove.”

Facebook quickly added a feature super easy way to help its users celebrate gay marriage rights. With this, Facebook-ers can add a gay pride flag filter to their profile picture.  Click here to convert yours.

While this ruling affects a country half way around the global, we’re happy to join in the celebration of the world taking steps in the right direction.

India, it’s now your turn.

~The demonic class of people is always promoting and enjoying the FALSE happiness, BETTER, and occasionally spreading their foolish diseases on the innocent younger generations… the real LOVE is to love GOD, unconditionally…
This so-called approval by man-made laws could be considered the WORST DEFEAT in humanity over the past couple centuries… the domino effect will probably bring fort many calamities in the years to come…

What does the Bible say about same sex marriage? God’s plan for sexuality and marriage “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” —Genesis 1:27 (NKJV) “And the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.’ Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living… Read more »

Yesterday was a day of celebration and love and rejoicing equality for all and a big step forward in our nation to come together and see everyone has equals in our community.
