    Civil rights should never be left to popular vote.

    BaytoBay... I agree with Henrin on pretty much nothing, but he is about as libertarian as they come... and a consistent one at that.

    Not exactly the mass's...a few

    An unprecedented Gallup study involving more than 120,000 interviews finds that 3.4% of U.S. adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender; the highest incidence is among those who are nonwhite, younger, and less educated.

    The "masses" I was referring to are those opposed to GM. And it was more of an over the top response to a stupid conservative hack comment.

    It all comes down to "What is the societal benefit which justifies treating a discernible 'class' as worthy of discrimination?"
    The DOMA amends the Constitution without amending the Constitution, don't really see how it was ever legal.

    Not everything should be left to popular vote. This is one of those issues which should not be left to popular vote.

    Re: New York appeals court strikes down Defense of Marriage Act

    It's hilarious how Henrin was attacked for his comments in this thread. He was attacked because all too often the people in pro gay circles are taught to use the very powerful rhetoric at their disposal. What I found funny is that he was attacked first for opposing gay marriage (Which he did not), and then he was attacked for not being a libertarian, (However his position is consistent with Libertarian ideaology).

    Gee I wonder what the pro gay police would say to my views on the topic.. LOL

    What strikes me as astoundingly ignorant is how anyone can say that every piece of legislation ever to be written and adopted in this nation was NOT a product of the popular vote. Whether it be by representation, or by appointment, you are a fool if you do not believe that a law came to be, ultimately by popular vote.
