: “Your case for gay marriage misses the point. The real issue is whether its people or its courts will rule America. The vast majority of Americans do not support gay marriage. For the courts and elected officials to force this change upon everyone else is profoundly undemocratic.
A federal marriage amendment that forbade the courts from requiring gay marriage but permitted the people to enact it through referendums or their legislatures is most desirable. But if you choose to support taking this path through the courts, then you are advocating a more noxious form of inequality, one that grants unequal power over an entire society to the special interests favoured by an activist elite judiciary over the interests of the masses.”
