Now, You Too Can Vote To Take Civil Rights Away From Someone

“The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority.” -John Dalberg

This MSNBC article outlines how an activist in California is working to get divorced banned there. From the article:

“The effort is meant to be a satirical statement after California voters outlawed gay marriage in 2008, largely on the argument that a ban is needed to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage. If that’s the case, then Marcotte reasons voters should have no problem banning divorce.”

I love it. Stop pretending banning gay marriage is about preserving traditional marriage. It’s about bigotry. Plain and simple.
