    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.

    Do you have an understanding as to how and why the Senate was created to have the same number of representatives from each state no matter how many people populate the state?

    Ah! You have yet -another- chance to counter this argument:

    Marriage is a legal status created by the state, and, as such, is necessarily a privilege conferred by the state, not a right.

    Dont worry -- I have no doubt that you will continue to dodge this argument.

    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

    Yes. That is a valid statement. According to that court.

    FWIW I just heard anywhere from 53-60% of registered voters turned out in Maine yesterday. No doubt this issue brought them.
