@HolyGod, The last 2 lines of your excellent comment are especially important. There's a potential for what has been called the tyranny of democracy in which, by popular vote, anything could potentially be made illegal including any religion, fish on Friday, non-kosher food, movies, skirts...anything the majority of voters happen to frown upon at the moment. You said it so well it deserves repeating... "Not everything should be voted on. The majority should never be allowed to vote to discriminate."

why is it only "fair" when your views trump mine? I'm sure people like you said that when women wanted the vote. Traditionally only men could vote, so why change the definition of "voter" to something people like you don`t agree with?
