WATCH: Jon Stewart Definitively Nails Opponents of Same-Sex Marriage Decision

Jon Stewart was in a celebratory mood on Monday night's show, what with all the recent progressive Supreme Court decisions. But he had to acknowledge that some thoughtful souls were not celebrating. For them, affordable health care and the legalization of same-sex marriage in all 50 states was nothing short of news-maggeddon.

Ted Cruz called it the "darkest 24 hours in our nation's history," a Fox Newsian wondered if polygamy was next, and everyone on the right is deeply concerned about those poor anti-gay florists. Stewart for one is very tired of the stereotype of the anti-gay florist.

Then there are those who object to the idea of the Supreme Court making any decisions at all. Shockingly, some of those people sit on the court itself.

Those founding fathers have a lot to answer for.
