Let's Let the Voters DecideThe anti-gay folks bring up this little gem everytime a legislature (state or otherwise) brings up any ballot that might mildly support gay people--from gay rights to gay marriage to gay adoption. The problem is that it's just such a ridiculous claim.
Give me a break. They're not interested in what the voters want unless the voters are on their side. If the voters were on the side of gays (which they sometimes are), you know good and well they would be taking it to the courts and trying to keep it as far away from the voters as possible.
It's fine, that's how politics and goverment work--you have to use any means necessary to win (i.e. courts, legislature, voters, etc.). But at least lets be honest.
We want to win. Most on the far left and the far right couldn't care less what the voters wanted if the voters didn't agree with them, so let's stop pretending they do. Let's just be honest. They should just say, "We're right, you're wrong, and we are going to use any legal method to make our view law. If that means a vote, great, but if the vote's not with us, we'll try something else."
