1) That maps reflects that activist judges have been throwing out sodomy laws all over America. Arkansas had its thrown out less than two years ago, Georgia the same I think.
2) Your relentless agressiveness in your desire to stamp out our freedom shows that even when you have 37 of 50 states who have the laws your way, that is not enough for you. You have to get in the business of those other states as well. Dissent cannot be allowed to remain even in one corner of our vast nation. Your concept of liberty bears a remarkable resemblance to totalitarianism.
Ah. Stalinist definitions, is it?

Rush, The Trees
There is unrest in the forest,
There is trouble with the trees,
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.
The trouble with the maples,
And they're quite convinced the're right.
They say the oaks are just too lofty,
And they grab up all the light.
But the oaks can"t help their feelings.
If they like the way they"re made.
And they wonder why the maples.
Can"t be happy in their shade?
There is trouble in the Forest.
And the creatures all have fled
As the Maples scream "Oppression!"
And the Oaks just shake their heads
So the maples formed a union,
And demanded equal rights.
"The oaks are just too greedy;
We will make them give us light."
Now there's no more oak oppression,
For they passed a noble law,
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw.
