WHEN YOUR POSITION IS UNSUPPORTABLE IN AMERICA'S CONSTITUTION, TRADITIONS OR LAW...:

the anti-democratic option (Phil Lawler, March 01, 2010, Catholic Culture)

"Gay rights by law, not vote" reads the headline on a Boston Globe editorial. Reading it for the first time, one might wonder how else laws are established in a democracy, if not by vote. But the subject of the editorial is same-sex marriage, so the usual rules of logic, rhetoric, and democratic theory do not apply.

...what choice do you have but judicial legislation? Thus do proponents of homosexuality and of corporate personhood both turn to the bench.
