Supreme Court: States CANNOT Ban Same Sex Marriage


Robicelli's Bakery located in Brooklyn, NY is celebrating Pride Weekend and today's historic Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage by making some very unique menu changes.
The bakery is running sweet specials this weekend that feature the "favorite desserts of gay icons." The sugar-coated confections include:


Cher's Parfait ($5): cannoli-cream mousse, crushed chocolate-chip cookies, and cannoli pieces.

Judy Garland's Milk & Cake Special ($7): served by the slice with a glass of milk.

Barbra Streisand's Ice Cream ($7): coffee "ice cream" that's really "more like a semifreddo," and served with crushed pretzels.

Madonna Tart ($5): a lemon tart with a raspberry-lychee salad.

Elton John's Grilled Cheese ($6): a cinnamon-raisin grilled cheese with mascarpone and pears.


Co-owner, Allison Robicelli promises all of the desserts, "have been well researched." She took Twitter with a sentimental stream of tweets to share why this day calls for a celebratory menu and more:
Know what I've found absolutely amazing about today? When I was a kid, I wasn't even allowed to know that Aunt Rosemarie and Aunt Marie were gay. I was told they were "roommates." And they kept up the charade for us, and they were OKAY with it. That's just how it was. They understood they were different. My mom, who's probably the most tolerant and loving person I've ever known, said she told them she was fine with it.. as long as they "didn't do anything in front of the kids". Which they saw no problem with. I never saw them kiss, or hold hands.

She goes on to tweet how she explained today to her kids:
Then today, I pick the kids up from the last day of school. I say "GUYS! I HAVE AMAZING NEWS!!!!" I tell them that all gay people can get married, and they look at me like I have 10 heads and say "So?"



What a wonderful time to be alive.

People stand outside the US Supreme Court June 25, 2015 in Washington, DC. The US Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a disputed portion of President Barack Obama's landmark health care reform, in a major legacy-building victory for his administration. By a margin of six to three, the judges ruled in favor of allowing the federal government to subsidize health insurance by giving tax credits to consumers nationwide. Opponents of the Affordable Care Act -- better known as 'Obamacare' -- had argued that it was unconstitutional for the federal government to subsidize insurance in this way in states that refused to set up their own insurance exchanges.
