Does that mean that Engel v. Vitale, Brown v. Board of Education, Miranda v. Arizona, Roe v. Wade, Lawrence v. Texas, and Obergefell v. Hodges can now be safely ignored if a state feels strongly enough about it?

And the silliest part of this is that Judge Barrett is likely to do exactly as you wish.  As a judicial conservative, she'll put most hot-button issues to the state and the voters if it doesn't actually violate the Constitution.  Overturning Marbury v. Madison isn't needed.  All you lose is the "I win" button here, not the ability to fight for them within the legislatures.

No, it means that congress doesn't need to go beg the Supreme Court to be allowed to use its political-power. Chances are, since the majority wants it, the end results of those cases would be enforced. You'll still have a federal government that prevents discrimination, it just wouldn't beg kritarchs to do so.
