When it comes to the Rights of an individual or group of individuals, "Majority Rule" will never be fair because the Majority would then be in the position to always rule over the Minority and or those who cannot speak for themselves politically. There is also the fact that when irrational thinking prevails, often times bad decisions are made with respect to the rights of others. While I do not agree with same sex marriage, it's none of my business if two people of the same sex choose to spend their lives together. It's not my place to tell them who they can or cannot love just as it is not their place to tell me. If you don't believe in same sex marriage, that’s fine but don't tell others that they must conform to your beliefs simply because you do not like the idea of them being different from you or your way of thinking.
