Yep. We just have to give our enemies cake and they will love us now that we have a President who is more American Idol winner that substance. Junk like that is why my TV is staying off this entire week until the Kool-Aid fest dies down to a more bearable level.

Not only cases of harm to an individual but also to the protect the society itself. That is why there are laws against some activities and owning certain items even though it may not directly harm another person.

@onebadgungan "so man-made laws can accomodate people who want to do whatever they want." Actually laws protect society by preventing people from doing whatever they want.

Ok, lets try a different approach. Why are you not also fighting to allow polygamy? There are no other "protected classes". Why should people with multiple partners be denied the same rights as monogamous partners? The answer is that polygamous marriage would go against the definition of marriage being a man and a woman just like gay marriage would.

Just because I have a different opinion does not make me a troll. I am entitled to my opinion which in this case was shared by the majority of voters. For the record I have been following this blog since the first version of wilwheaton.net

"Gender, ethnicity, religion, and age are now considered things that are protected - discrimination based on those things is not allowed. Sexuality, being a natural part of a living thing, should be added to the list." So if you're sexuality happened to include pre-teen kids we should just add that to your protected list as well? Sorry, just because you have a different moral scale than the majority of the country does not mean that the rest of the country adjusts their morality for you.

@Amanda The problem with that approach is that you are using examples that were based on race not a moral decision. This is more along the lines of concepts like NAMBLA. It goes against the morals of the majority.

"taltoz, because no one realized that black people could be as bigoted as whites are considered." They may be bigoted in your opinion but their votes should count just as much as yours. That is the way the process works.

Here is what I cannot understand. Why is it that when an election goes the way the left wants (as in the case of the new President elect) then the majority has spoken and the reset of the country should just shut up but in the case of Prop 8 and other bans on gay marriages you want to say screw the democratic process and the votes of the majority simply because you didn't get your way. The voters have spoken and it there is no reason for this to go any farther much less to a court to decide what the people want when their voice has already been heard in the voting process.

It is interesting to see that after all of the talk of how this election shows we as a country have put racism behind us when the fact is most people voted for Barack Hussein Obama simply because he is considered black. Just look at the results for the ballot measures against gay marriage and you will see that the majority of people in this country do not share the liberal views of the democratic party. Now the rest of the country will have to suffer through the term of someone chosen not for their experience or any accomplishments they have made but instead for the color of their skin. Yep, this is a huge step forward... Now if you will excuse me I am heading to the store to stock up on ammunition before King Barack Hussein Obama takes over and implements his 500% excise tax on guns and ammunition.
