But we only want to save democracy!

As conservative arguments against giving gays the special privilege of equality keep getting shot down, conservatives keep coming up with new ones. Remember "equal rights, not special rights" as an excuse to mandate special rights, not equal rights?

This month's eternal verity is that conservatives oppose giving gays any semblance of marriage equality soley out of concern for democracy. That is, we should let the voters in the affected area, or their democratically elected representatives, decide the matter. Really?

I can hardly wait to see how the infallible dogma gets rewritten next.
