• How's this"
    Let's drop the word "rights". It's way overdone. I like "freedoms" better. That being said,Gay Freedoms are the same as Non-Gay freedoms. Only people keep trying to make them different by saying that the courts are overridding the MAJORITY!! I can't rememer where I read it or who said it but "The Bill of Rights(Freedoms) is not about the majority rule. On the contrary,it's to protect us from the majority rule.
