    In other words only 33.33% have been a result of court order.

    In how many of those cases was that legislation or ballot process made AFTER a court order making SSM legal or making it not illegal?

    You are free to check, might be one or two. For example Vermont in 1999 the Vermont Supreme Court ruled that the state must extend equal treatment to homosexuals, but did not define how that was to be done. The legislature took up the issue and decided on Civil Unions. Such action satisfied the court and the issue was at an end. In 2009 the passed Civil Marriage and it because the law, no court pressure exerted.

    There is one of seven, you can find the basics in Wiki.

    I'll guarentee you that 99% of the legal entities listed above were not based on "left wing judges".

    ... and Oregon will probably be the next.

    You're voting in 2014, and that's after the marriage licenses were invalidated by the courts in 2004 and last week's court order to recognize out of state marriages.

    Meh, I'll still vote no. The state isn't as liberal as our state government believes. Heck, we've had pot legaliztion on almost every ballot for a decade now and it still gets voted down.

    Someday someone is ACTUALLY going to read the 14th amendment and say "Oh, ok I get it now". Maybe if SCOTUS did we would not have all this hot air circulating around a non-issue

    we are still waiting for you to list all the states that banned it by public vote and then what the pool results are for those states approving equal rights for gays and then the national poll results.

    I wonder why you keep dodging this?
