Changing laws by judicial fiat, as gay marriage came about, brings out the rebelliousness in the American people. I think that many of those who voted for the gay marriage ban in California would have voted to pass a law, had the whole issue not been removed from their hands by activist judges.
Honestly, this gives me hope for the majority.
The vocal minority, on the other hand, is up to their usual tricks: protest, boycott, and if those tactics don't work, get noisier until it does work.
Does this remind anyone of a toddler in a grocery store?
