Ok, normally I would not post about politics or political issues on this blog, but I feel very strongly on this issue and need to get some stuff off my chest. As most of you may know, yesterday in Maine, voters were asked to cast their vote for or against same-sex marriage. Sadly, the slight majority voted against same-sex marriage making the total number of states to ban same-sex marriage by “popular” vote at 31. Knowing this number angers me to the core. In my opinion, rights of a minority group should not be decided by the majority. This has proven through the Emancipation Proclamation, the women’s voting rights movement, the civil rights of 1968, Loving v. Virginia, and Roe v. Wade. All of these were decided by the President, Congress, or the Supreme Court. This is how gay rights issues should be handled, and not by popular vote.
Now that I have expressed my anger opinion over the issue of same-sex marriage, I will step off my soapbox, and get back to talking about pop culture.
