    A more accurate thread title would be, "DC City Council votes to impose gay marriage" - given that most DC citizens are opposed to it.

    Unless they are passing a law that everyone has to get gay married, no, they are not imposing anything on anyone.

    Still, it is a sign of the times regarding legislation.
    How would Congress interfere with it? in your opinion.

    Of course they are, they're imposing their beliefs that gay marriage should be legal.

    I would support such a law.

    Depends on how you look at it. From my perspective, it looks as though they are blocking the anti-gm crowd from imposing their moral disapproval upon gays.

    Depends on how their marriage laws were worded prior to this. If there was not mention of 1 man or 1 woman, they imposed nothing. They simply stopped the imposition of others before it every got started.

    Either way, mob rule voting away the rights of others is still prohibited by our Constitution.

    To take a page out of another poster in this thread's playbook...That is true of every law. We are imposing our belief that people should not molest young children on people too.

    A more accurate post would be "Taylor posts to impose silly opinion" - given that most DP members aren't that silly.
