Gay Marriage: It's Not Just for Liberals Anymore

David Boies points out that "If we were prepared to consign minority rights to a majority vote, there would be no need for a constitution."

And cites: As Justice Anthony Kennedy elegantly wrote rejecting the notion that a history of discrimination might trump constitutional rights, "Times can blind us to certain truths and later generations can see that laws once thought necessary and proper in fact serve only to oppress. As the Constitution endures, persons in every generation can invoke its principles in their own search for greater freedom."
