You haven't identified the right which is being taken away.

So who gets to decide on who has the right to vote? Shouldn't the citizenry? CA voters concerned about a matter of serious social and cultural impact got the requisite number of signatures to get an item on the ballot. They followed the legal process...but I guess you'd like to bring that process under review now too?

Why doesn't the Gay community sponser a bill to have "GCU"s to have the same benefits as marriage and call it a day?

you've never enumerated the rights that heteros should have and that homos should be denied.

i want to know which ones, and why.

should VA have voted in 1967 on the Loving marriage?

do you really think that all issues should be decided at the ballot box?

Ignoring the rather glaring 'separate but equal' situation that would create, it is my understanding that the Mormon church would oppose such a bill (why would they want to give equal rights to people they believe are actively engaging in sinful behavior?).

Time for your honesty cap, diamond: would you go against the church and vote in favor of such a bill?

What was the problem with racially segregated drinking fountains? It was all the same water supply; no one was denied the right to drink.
