Prop 8 passed by the tyranny of the majority. It was democracy in it's purest form...the 51% rules over the 49%. The "will of the people", is fickle and tyrannical, and always will be.
The question is not the court ruling that went against the 51%. The question is: How is it possible that society can vote a majority, over the rights of the minority?
All voluntary, peaceful interaction & contracts should be allowed, regardless if 99% of the people disapprove. There might come a day when you are the next American indian, slave, jew, christian, muslim, hippie, pagan, gypsy etc... that's being voted against.
The reality is, when prop 8 passed, it was a sad day. Because our gov allowed the tyranny of the majority to be placed on the ballot. When the supreme court ruled in favor of doma, it was a sad day. Because we are sandwiched between the tyranny of gov. and the tyranny of the democracy. Here we are, still begging for scraps of freedom.
But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. ~Lysander Spooner
