As a married, heterosexual male I applaud this decision. The decision has no affect whatsoever on my marriage or the marriages of other heterosexual couples. It simply expands the rights of those that were previously left in the dark.
So in my pea-sized brain, I don't understand all the hoopla against this ruling. Marriage is not just a Christian ideal, right? So can we really use the bible as a talking point against gay marriage?
