The law which was written doesn't jibe with the will and moral compass of most of the people!

The people who sit in the executive, the legislature and the judiciary weren't born there, and they didn't inherit them either. They were put there, directly and indirectly, by the majority of these so called moral citizens. There's an old saying...we get the government we deserve.

There's an old saying...we get the government we deserve.

Your arguments completely ignores the John Adams quote which I posted earlier: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

I think we can agree that our moral and religious compass is completely out of whack when we are arguing that people actively engaging in immoral actions seem to have more rights than those who are taking a moral stand on their religious beliefs.

More importantly, you should know the entire quote from Alexis de Tocqueville. He said, "...in a democracy, we get the government we deserve." We are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Representative Democracy. Which means that these people are supposed to go and represent the wills and wishes of the people they represent. However, as I stated before, in every state where the direct democracy option (ballot initiative - where your "we deserve the government we get" comes into play), same-sex marriage has FAILED!

It has only been implemented where the representatives have gone AGAINST the overwhelming will of the people or where the judicial branches have re-written the laws to allow rights that never existed.
