So you agree then the majority would not vote as you would like them to? Quite an admission! Life in the US is decided by the majority regardless of how we may or may not like the outcome of the vote.<quoted text>
The pattern of things changes ONLY for us, not for you.
If society decided that your right to marry was inappropriate, and arbitrarily decided that you would NEVER be able to marry your spouse, would you fight that? Would your love your spouse enough, and your kids enough, to demand the same basic right to marry that all other adults in society have?
If not, then your marriage is worthless.
And why do you feel that you should have the right to decide which consenting single adult I can marry? Would you sit still and take it if I have the ability to decide for YOU?
Marriage is NOT a "liberal agenda". Marriage is a basic human and civil right that cannot be taken from me or anyone else on a whim. There needs to be a rational state interest to do that, and, in this case, there is no such thing.
The state's interest is in helping families to be more stable, chidlren to be more protected, and the elderly to be more secure, and marriage helps with ALL of these things - for gay and straight people alike.
You do have the right to decide for me, every time you enter the voting booth, as I have for you. That's how it was intended and how it works.
SS marriage is a liberal agenda, you know it and so do I. Since you admit the majority would not side with you then you must also admit you'd prefer the tail wag the dog.
