It’s been a big day of tension, activism, anticipation, and scorching Facebook redness on this blessed day of SCOTUS review. Here are 10 tweets from gays, non-gays, comics, and non-comics that help push our conversation along in a fun way.
Braden Graeber takes us back to the glorious beginning of heterosexual marriage.
“Traditional marriages lead to healthier families.” Look how great Adam and Eve’s kids turned out.

Chris Schleicher channels Scalia, which is a dangerous game.
“But how would the Founding Fathers phrase their bigotry?” – Scalia’s inner monologue

Michael Martin proves that we’re already winners in this great fight.
I’d like to point out that all this DOMA stress has only increased the amount of gay porn on my Tumblr feed.

Jami Smith can be the bigger woman about this whole thing.

Tess Rafferty pulls the pin and tosses the grenade at the worst hypocrites of all.
“What’s next? Marrying a goat?” People who think a goat can say “yes” are the same people who don’t think a woman can say “no” #Prop8

Guy Branum helps us direct our thank-yous to the right justice.
Justice Ginsburg has consistently asserted that when you talk shit about gays, you are talking shit about women. We owe her a lot. #equality

Dave Holmes reminds us that the heart of this issue is cat-eating.
I am only able to listen to the #prop8 proceedings, but I am confident in assuming that Charles Cooper is the dad from Alf.

Ugh, I have something to say.
Prediction: Antonin Scalia starts crying in the middle of his own antigay speech and sobs, “I can’t. It’s Diana Ross’ birthday!”

All I can say: Frank Conniff, thank you for this dead-on, hair-raisingly sweet tweet.
Yo, traditionalists – traditions have to begin somewhere. Marriage Equality is a great tradition that’s just getting started.

Rob Delaney reminds me of a product I’m marketing to Evanglical Christians: “Bag O’ Hate!”
Why the helmet? I fell & hit my head trying to force my personal hatred into this bag that was QUITE FULL with Christ’s loving words.

Finally, Jesse Tyler Ferguson contextualizes this issue in a way I understand: Oscar-worthiness.
SCOTUS: When Steven Spielberg & Tony Kushner make the movie about today you are going to want to be the Tommy Lee Jones, not the Lee Pace.
