I put this in the “can they hear themselves?” category, because I find it hard to believe that Gary Randall endorses the fundamental principle of American liberty that the rights of the minority should never be subject to the whims of the majority.

In a blog post today Randall, a sponsor of the referendum effort to repeal Washington’s new marriage equality law, says that “The nature of marriage should not be defined by popular whim“.

Then he invites the reader to “Please join us in circulating petitions to defend marriage in Washington State“. In other words, he invites readers to join him in subjecting Washington’s marriage law to popular whim.
