    The people you cited have very little in common, politically. Perhaps what it means is you're arguments were profoundly unpersuasive.

As I pointed out right at the start of our argument, you use the words "majority" and "plurality" as terminology tied to your voting system. I use these words in their common definition. And in common definition both of them mean "greater number".


    And did majority wishes in this case trample on minority rights or minority wishes?

    You are not correct. Will you now provide the link you used for your definition, so even your own source will prove you incorrect?

    The people I cited have one thing in common: adherence to political correct dogmas and rejection of any opinion otside of it. It's enough.

    Have you got fingers? Have you got a keyboard?

    Type in "majority definition of", then "plurality definition of", choose from the options available and read.

    No, no problem. Except its not legally recognized. That requires passing a law.
    Yes, I said "married", not "cohabiting".

    I used the word correctly.

    Works for me.

    Then the Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution will make it legal in your state.

    Yep, IMO it's more important for this issue to be passed and done away with so the politicians will no longer have this false issue to wave when they want to hide something else.

    Quote Originally Posted by scourge99 View Post

    I"m glad I used the word probably, because I haven't read that law in years, and could easily be wrong. I'll let you have that point, because I'm not going to torture myself reading it again.

    It is a violation of the American sense of fair play, though, and clearly also violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

    Age based eligibilities are one thing, there are rational arguments for each of the items on that list.

    There are no rational arguments in opposition to same sex marriage.

    Not one.

    Here let me answer this for you in reguards to the OP no what happen was the citz. of the State of Maine once again got tired of the Jack-Offs who were elected passing stuff with-out ask what the Citz. of Maine thought, hence you had it put on the ballet and the Citz. of Maine used their 1st Adm. Right to freely decide this matter.

    Now do you understand that if not then your a lost cause.
