But remember Winston County.
Oooh. Nice one Jar. Hey didn't you get suspended once for posting a reference that we had to look up to understand? LoL

Or in 1963.

I think it's the SCOTUS who are acting unconstitutionally by calling the vote by state citizens unconstitutional.
When did the Supreme Court do that with regard to gay marriage? Has someone jumped the gun here? Aren't all of these latest rulings Federal Circuit Court rulings?
The constitution places limits on what things you can do with popular vote. You and you buddies cannot suddenly to vote on whether women should have the vote vote, or that people born in this county are not citizens no matter how much you hate the idea. On balance that's likely a good thing.
If you really cannot stand to abide by those limits, there are plenty of Western democracies which don't have a bill of rights. Of course you may need to leave your guns here when you go.

The Supreme Court did not rule on the issue. The SC simply did not block a lower court ruling.

Re: Christian Tyranny
Prayer in the name of Jesus opening Congressional sessions. Nobody among the Founders ever opposed that as against the First Amendment.
Can you back that up? I know that Madison believed the employment of a legislative Chaplin was unconstitutional and was an establishment of religion. I find it difficult to conclude that Madison was either 1) not a founder or 2) not opposed to the prayer.

Even the UK has one, it's just easier to repeal than in a typical country,
Which in my opinion, is exactly the distinction that distinguishes legislated rights from a set of rights set on the same level as the constitution, with protection against both government overreach and majority vote.
I understand the annoyance. I don't begrudge you from feeling that way. But on the other hand my remarks on the matter hinge on the ease of repealing your rights.
