  1. When will they ever learn that you do not VOTE in basic rights!!!

      In states that have constitutional bans on marriage that were enacted through a vote of the people, there are only two routes to marriage equality: (1) The same voters who enacted the original ban repeal it through another vote, or (2) A court strikes down the original ban as unconstitutional. There is no other possibility. While the judicial route may be the only option in places like Mississippi, if the people can undo their mistake, that is better because it lends more credibility to the action.

    2. While I’m in full agreement with you (majority tyranny sickens me when it comes to equal rights) a majority vote in favor of equality, would be a great slap in the face to the bigoted opponents of it. They cry all the time about the courts making laws that the public “didn’t want.” I’d like to hear their excuse when the majority of Nebrascans support the bill, which I suspect they do. Thus is passed into law.
      Still ideally, the idea of voting on GLBT equal rights, would should sound as absurd as voting on racial rights. It really is.

      1. I forgot about that and I guess you are actually correct that is does send a message

    A State that has ‘Equality before the law’ on it’s great seal should live up to it’s name and introduce marriage equality pronto.
