I am not American... Let's see, "plurality" -- The number by which the vote of the winning choice in such a contest exceeds that of the closest opponent.
Nope, still a majority.
Majority means they got one vote over 50% of votes. Plurality could be any percentage, depending upon the number of candidates. For example, the minimum percentage for a plurality with ten candidates would be one vote over 10%.

And the law has no bearing on right and wrong. The fact that judges do not recognize the analogy between miscegenation and SSM does not make it false.
Then why, expressed by voting the rights of majority prevail?
The rights of the majority don't prevail over the rights of the minority. The rights of the majority are equal to the rights of the minority. The wishes of the majority prevail so long as those wishes do not infringe upon the rights of the minority.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
