Same sex marriage began as one of these issues where no matter what LGBTQ people did they would never have enough numbers to win anything. The number of supporters did grow and eventually it turned into the court case. Same sex marriage won in court. Is it force feeding the nation? Perhaps. This is not the first time decisions like this happen. The thing is same sex marriage happened to be supported by the majority according to the poles. So I guess it is not force feeding. It made the decision for the nation which was divided by states. More states supported SSM. The nation needed equal policy and this did that. Some are unhappy but this is not force fed. The court maintained a balance. It was not heavy handed. The court against all reason elected George W. Bush President and the nation went along with this. This is not new and ground breaking for the court to make decisions like this. We only need to follow along as Americans have always done.
