    That is the simplistic view, certainly.

    No. Not at all. The court decision actually opened a can of worms.

    They didn't "vote it into law". They correctly recognized that prohibiting gays from marrying violates the constitution. Constitutionally protected rights are not up to a popular vote. The right of gays to marry is no more subject to a vote than is your right to speak freely or to have a fair trial.

    2) No, it didn't. It didn't at all.
    1) Where is the problem? Let the people work out how they want it and put it in a contract.
    2) Of course, if you do not mind the government systematically breaking the constitution, I guess one could take that position.

    No Right should be left up to mob mentality. It was mob mentality that kept slavery going for so long. It was mob mentality that allowed Jim Crow laws to last so long. It was mob mentality that allowed miscegenation laws. It was mob mentality that led to a lot of black people being strung up in trees. It was mob mentality that destroyed many many civilizations.

    I don't want to live in a mob mentality state/country that allows restrictions on Rights.
