>> because the whole point of a constitution is a constitution and the bill of rights limits what a majority can do with respect to minority rights. if you were going to apply the majority rule, you wouldn't need a bill of rights or a constitution. our society is built on the principle that there are certain inalienable rights, life, liberty, the pursuit of happine happiness, that every human being is guaranteed, and that the government cannot take that away, no matter how many people vote for it. >> to that point, it's not just opponents of same-sex marriage you have had to face. prominent gay rights advocates have expressed concern that a loss at the federal level could set a precedent that could take decades to unmake.
