"Opponents of California's gay marriage ban
need to learn how democracy works,
Chuck Norris argues at

Post-election Proposition 8 protesters are attacking churches
for backing the ban and threatening boycotts, Norris writes, when they should be accepting the majority vote of their fellow Californians.

"Like it or not, it's the law now," the actor writes.
"The people have spoken."
If democracy doesn't tip our direction, we don't swing to anarchy.

That would be like the Wild West, the resurrection of which

seems to be happening in these post-election protests.

The utter ignorance of how the Constitution protects the minority from the tyranny of the majority is once again shown by the self righteous radical right in the persona of Chuck, "I'll Kick Your Liberal Ass," Norris. His anti Americanism is blatantly breath taking. His pronouncement leads me to ask, Has he ever read the Constitution or articles that explain that the Constitution was created to protect the rights of the individual not the rights of the majority? Apparently not!

To paraphrase Chevy Chase of SNL, "Chuck, You ignorant slut". I know your brain damage from taking all those kicks to the head have affected your ability to think, but the simple truth is that the Constitution does not allow the plurality to take away unalienable rights of the minority, which includes the right to form a legally binding union with another individual. Its none of the governments, societies, and certainly none of your F'in business. Read the "frickin" document.

Unalienable rights are god given and are not up to you or some misguided bunch of twisted christians to give or abrogate. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness includes the right to enter into a legal partnership with whomever you desire and those basic rights, are non-negoitable. Period. Your rights don't include the right to remove the rights of others except under the most dire and stringent of circumstances, such as a felon trying to buy a gun. Period. Your removal of the rights of others by a religiously motivated referendum, is not democracy in action, it is a mob action of the self-righteous, tantamount to a political lynching and will be the death of this democrat republic you profess to love, if it is allowed to stand.

That is precisely why the founders demanded that there was a separation of church and state, because, they had first hand experience with being persecuted by self righteous, over zealous religious fanatics, i.e. the Puritans who burned and drowned those they considered to be witches. They didn't want those kind of fanatics to be able to do that in this country.

It is incredible that the religious radical, far right, wraps itself in the flag and castigates others for their ignorance and lack of patriotism, while their own ignorance is so blatantly apparent. They neither know or understand the bible they are so fond of quoting nor the premise of the Constitution that embodies the rights of each individual granted by the very God they proclaim to love.

Chuck, the bible has a word for you!

I am a child of the WWII era. I have always considered myself a patriot, even when I have passionately disagreed with the policies of the government. My view is that disagreeing with the current caretakers, during any administration, is not only our (more...)
