    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Facts that are easily and regularly over looked or ignored by those debating against SSM. Good points.

    We do not have majority rule on everything else.

    Dont really understand what that has to do with oppression in America however.

    In this country gay people have been put through some pretty terrible things in history. Its much better today but LGBT people still dont have the same rights or respect as most other groups so yes I would say yes we are oppressed to some extent.
    Other than SSM they are not oppressed... I knew a ton of gay people that were rich, went where they wanted, said what they wanted, etc. They just couldn't get married and were treated poorly some but many thought probably less than people who were black simply because you can't see gay.

    Referendums are majority rule. Congress is majority (or better) rule, politics is majority rule, jury system is majority (or unanimous) rule. Our system is built on public opinion of the majority.

    This is different because.... ?

    You made a statement and it is relevant to your words. So your statement was relevant as well. Fine and dandy.

    OK, I do not know why this is complicated, but if this is a constitutional issue(it probably is), then like every other constitutional issue, majority rule is not enough to over rule. See, not everything is subject to majority rule. The majority cannot vote to overturn any constitutional right.

    The US does not have majority rule in the election for president.

    What's not complicated is answering the question:

    My statement was a JOKE. I have already stated that and that is why the rest of it is irrelevant.
