Last night, North Carlina said a resounding "No" to gay marriage by passing a state constitutional amendment against it (61% – 39%). Each time the population of a state is given a chance to vote gay marriage in or out, they vote it out. The only states that have laws approving gay marriage forced it upon the people by legislation.
As a matter of fact, California has voted twice to ban gay marriage but both times their choice was struck down by judges. That is tyranny.
