Mixed Thoughts

I am not sure what to make of this.

On the legal side, I am not a fan of democratizing inalienable rights. Gays should have the right to marry, and it is not up to the bigoted and right wing religious fascists to have a vote. Allowing such a vote opens the door to the increasing tyranny of the majority.

On the other hand, I would love for these folks to get their butts whipped in an election. I would be very proud of my home state if they defeated this amendment and stood up to bigotry. I think most people in the state came to realize that their world was not going to end because gays and lesbians had the right to marry. The question now will be, if those folks are motivated enough to vote against the religious nuts.
