Somehow the Four Stooges at the state Supreme Court have got it in their minds that overriding the will of the people ---- more than 4.6 million of them ---- in the matter of homosexual marriage is their solemn duty.
In a democracy, the majority doesn't have absolute rule. They win on most things, but when it comes to civil rights, they don't have a say. If they did, then the majority could vote to kill off a minority. Or vote to end democracy. Or vote to maintain slavery. Or vote to deny rights to gay people. The majority doesn't have this right.
