    Oh, really? Ok, well then, do us all a favor and show us any of my comments that could be interpreted as homophobic. Fix a lunch, this is going to take you a while.

    I assumed nothing. I asked you a question. Just answer it.

    Absolutely right.

    If the people vote it in, no problem but circumventing the people is the only way this has passed any state so far.
    This is just another incident where activists try and circumvent the will of the people......As soon as a vote is taken it will be overturned again as it has every time when the people speak........

    Perhaps you'd be happier in a Direct Democracy rather than a Republic.

    The Will Of the People?? Did the DC City Council elect themselves into office?

    Just as they did with slavery and segregation. The "will of the people" isn't always right.

    Moderator's Warning:
    DC City Council votes to legalize gay marriageLet's cease with the innuendo and use of terms like "racist", "libbo" and others intended to be derogatory. This thread is about gay marriage in Washington DC, not slavery, apartheid in South Africa or someone's religion. I suggest everyone stop with the side banter and return to topic or thread bans will be issued.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    The thread isn't just about GM in Washington DC. It's also about rights. Some are arguing that the "will of the people" should be the determining factor in GM rights so the people should vote instead of the DC council. By bringing up slavery I show that the will of the people is not always right...hence why they should be circumvented at times by the government. If you wish to ban me for bringing up a valid response that's fine. I don't have to post in this thread.

    I do agree with the rest of your warning tho.

    That does not take away the fact that when the people voted gay marriage was shot down every single time........
