    Actually, I tend to believe that the bill of rights and constitution should be the ultimate authority, but that if the people are truly united, they can amend these documents.

    Sovereignty over the lives of others, no.
    I go more with sovereignty over government.

    Thats what I meant. I don't think we should be able to change our primary laws easily, but we should be able to change them if enough of us think it is necessary.

    That is a rather key question. Over 1000 rights granted by marriage in federal law.

    Prop 8 is precisely why democracy can be incredibly dumb.
    There is no factual reason to restrict gay marriage.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I don't really care what people's purposes are, but I think that given enough people, society will balance itself out in regards to these things anyway.

    Sad but predictable.
    Of course, you realize that one of the main purposes of our courts is to protect the rights of the minority from the tyranny of the majority.
