North Caroline citizens will vote Today, May 8, on Amendment 1, a measure that would amend their state Constitution to prohibit same-sex marriage. This is as it ought to be – people deciding, not courts. As there is strong indication that it will pass, challenge and interference in the right of the people to decide issues for themselves may ensue from so-called civil rights and civil liberties groups. Gay marriage is not a Constitutional right, nor is it even a civil right. It is certainly not a right to be administered by a minority of people, whether those people be lawyers, politicians or judges. If gay marriage is ever to be, and to become, a right is must come from the people directly. Hypocritical liberals have no concern about one lone judge, or a mere few of them, ruling from the bench and striking down any law or measure that, although it was passed either by a state’s majority congress or a state’s majority of citizens, it nonetheless does not pass mustard with liberals and liberal ideology – i.e., border enforcement; illegal alien crack-downs, voter ID requirements, and of course anti-gay marriage initiatives. On the other hand, these same hypocritical liberals will always support the majority in any congress and in any populace when these majorities vote in favor of a liberal initiative, and these same hypocritical liberals will always condemn any attempt to override such legislation by conservatives when it suits their hypocritical. double standard wielding, two-faced fancies. Gays and lesbians, and liberals, and even conservatives who support gay marriage, ought to understand that to force this issue on an unwilling public will only harm the progress made in gay and lesbian acceptance. That goes for anything forced on a majority by the minority, by the way. Will gay marriage ever be accepted in America, and if so, how soon? How soon will depend on how patient pro-gay marriage supporters are willing to be. Because if supporters keep forcing the issue, animosity towards gay marriage will only spread. Or – do supporters of gay marriage think a minority can silence a majority? And if so – for how long?
