“We will not give up on D.C. The people of D.C. have the right to vote for marriage; we will fight for their rights and we will win”

SOUNDBITES โ€” “This battle is not over. DC politicians are blocking the right of people to vote on marriage. Voters in 31 other states have already exercised their right to vote on this issue. It is ironic that some politicians actively campaign demanding DC voting rights and yet they are conspiring to deny those same citizens the right to vote on the definition of marriage. We will not give up on D.C. The people of D.C. have the right to vote for marriage; we will fight for their rights and we will win. NOM will be proud to fight alongside Bishop Harry Jackson to make sure politicians hear the people’s voice loud and clear: don’t mess with marriage. We will fight in Congress. We will fight through the courts to get this to the people of D.C. who have a God-given right to vote for marriage and Charter-given right to overturn the council’s decision. We are confident marriage will win in the end in D.C. as it has in Maine and 30 other states.” —NOM executive director and wannabe great orator Brian Brown, reminding supporters the organization is proud to “fight alongside” leading faith-based bigots (via)

      What does this tool not understand about representative democracy? People’s rights should never be up to a popular vote. Whose rights will be next?

      The time for these heterosexuals demanding special rights is coming to an end.

      These people want special rights, guilty of the very same thing they have been saying of homosexuals. It is in their rhetoric, “There is something special about a mother and father”, or that it is a special right they deserve, and only they deserve.

      A special right indeed. I hope some day marriage is no longer a special right, but a human right.

      The majority should never be allowed to vote on the rights of the minority.

      The fact that their anti-marriage rallies draw less than a few dozen people here in DC each time they have one shows that it is obviously a bunch of people from out of the area trying to come in here and stir things up. What a bunch of idiots.

      No. 5 ยท Cam: I made a little correction to you statement:

      “obviously a bunch of people from out of the area trying to come in here and raise more funds form the scumbage who support their campaign of hatred.” is the correct ending to your sentence!!

      Maggie (the cunt)Gallagher and Brown make mega bucks by “continuting the fight” against the Gays. They can have a rally with 13 people, they and Faux News will report there were 50,000 people there, fueling the passions of the rightwing-nutbag lunatics. We are the boogey men for these lunatics. They can’t be public with their hatred of the Jews, Blacks, Hispanics any longer. We are the only acceptable punching bags………

      The people of Washington DC did vote. They voted for the council members who are now in office. Those duly elected council members are in the process of doing their duties.

      This will blow over. The Congress won’t touch it with a 20 foot pole. The Federal courts won’t touch it with a 10 foot pole, other than to note that the council members are duly elected. Some of the bigots might try to make it a campaign issue in the next DC council elections, but that’s about all.
