"People's right shouldn't be subject to the will of the people."
Agreed. Now what "rights" are we talking about? Marriage is a licensed behavior, such as driving a car or becoming an architect. Licensing is regulated by the state, and is subject to rejection. This is a rare case where the people get to have a say in license regulations. These arguments that you and so many others are making would apply if the issue was voting against being gay - not the allowing of homosexual marriage. You have every right to be gay and live a gay lifestyle - having a vote by the majority on that right would be what you are saying. Not simply upholding the current definition of marriage as it has always been.
"And don't give me the moral crap. We're not all Christians, and thus should not have Christian morals forced upon us."
And I would say we're not all gay either - so don't force your beliefs on the rest of us. I have absolutely no problem at all with homosexuals, and their lifestyle. I would adamantly defend one's right to the sexual preference of their choosing, and would never support any effort to deny such rights. However, marriage is not a right. Marriage is defined as one man and one woman - and we simply upheld that current definition.
The thing that motivated me to vote for this amendment was not the idea of homosexuals getting married - it was all of the collateral damage that has happened in other states. Such as, if a church doesn't want to marry two men, because it is against their doctrine, the state forces them to, because it is the law. Where all all the separation of church and state folks then? Children in school are forced to learn about the gay lifestyle and how absolutely normal it is for Johnny to have two daddies just as much as a mommy and a daddy - and parents cannot opt out of this teaching, because it is the LAW. These things infringe far too much on my sense of liberty, and I could not tolerate it in good conscience. That's the real damage - far more than gay marriage.
