    Incidental question: Do you think personal liberties should be decided by popular vote? Generally speaking I mean.

    If done legally I think the vote of the people should be what counts........If that was not the case, why have a republic, a democracy, if you don't like how we settle things in this country move to Cuba.

    Oh and gays have the same right I do. They want a special right........give it to them and you have to give it to every other class of people.........

    What makes "gays" a different class of people? I don't expect you to answer that with any ounce of honesty.

    You do not have a republic with mob rule. You have a democracy with mob rule. With a republic the minority voice is heard. With a democracy the minority voice is drowned out by the mob.

    People at one time voted to deny inter-racial marriages. They also voted to keep blacks segregated from whites. They also voted to keep blacks as slaves. And it was ALL done legally.

    And no gays do not have the same right as you. You have the right to marry the person that you love if they consent to the marriage. Gays do not have that right currently. Your arguement would only be valid if we still allowed forced marriages where loving someone was never taken into consideration.

    Saw this today and thought I would post it instead of writing my usual rebuttals.

    When do we get to vote on your marriage Navy?

    Should inter-racial marriage be allowed to be put to a vote? Should we be allowed to pass a law that says that people who have committed adultry should not be allowed to marry?

    Why do we elect legislators to make laws, shouldn't we just put it to a popular vote for everything?

    I'm sure on the right-wing propoganda that you listen to.....they probably do. That's the problem when you don't live in the real world.

    Ahh yes, the special right argument.

    What special right is that? Which right are gays asking for that you do not possess?

    And, as others have asked, how come I haven't gotten to vote on your marriage?
