Fox News' Starnes upset that civil rights can't be unchecked popularity contests
The man who is probably the single most committed anti-gay activist on Fox News' payroll, Todd Starnes, can't believe that taxpaying same-sex couples deserve a standard above that of a high school student council election:
Oh no, these judges care about your vote, Todd. If not for the votes that wrong side of history activists forced on this nation during a misguided Bush era fervor, then the judges wouldn't have anything to call unconstitutional.
Not to mention, I'm pretty sure "the people" did indeed "will" our current situation into existence. The people of Virginia willed into office an Attorney General who wouldn't defend marriage bans. The people willed into office George H.W. Bush, who appointed the judge who brought out-of-state same-sex marriage recognition to Kentucky. The people re-elected President Obama, whose efforts, along with AG Holder's, have been so deliciously key. And so on and so forth. In fact, "the people" have a hand in just about every amazing marriage equality development that has played out over the past few years.
When it comes to crude discrimination, the people eventually get it right. Always, every time.
