    Nope, still a majority.

    First off, it's not a small minority. This is almost 50/50 + noise. Second, you don't understand the fundamentals of this country. We establish the free exercise of the rights of the People, all the People. The system was set up not to be direct democracy (as that is mob rule), but rather a democratic Republic in which we have checks to ensure the rights of the minority are not trampled. If you wish to move against the rights of the minority, you are in the wrong, you are practicing evil.

    I've already shown you that Loving has no bearing on same sex marriage according to the New York Court of Appeals.

    49% to 45% say (like similar to the NY election) is plurality without majority.

    You can call it a shoe box if you want, but 49 is still bigger than 45.

    Of course it is. Do you read and comprehend things which are put down on this site. The question was difference between majority and plurality. Plurality does not necessarily mean majority.
