Democracy in Virginia

Virginia’s attorney general single-handedly overturns the will of Virginia’s voters:

Virginia’s attorney general has concluded that the state’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional and he will no longer defend it in federal lawsuits challenging it, his office said Thursday. In an email to The Associated Press, Michael Kelly, a spokesman for Attorney General Mark Herring, said the state will instead side with the plaintiffs who are seeking to have the ban struck down.

I find it interesting that homosexual advocates think that overturning the will of the people is a good idea, when history clearly demonstrates that what cannot be imposed by votes will eventually be imposed by force. All this sort of thing does is demonstrate what the extremists have been pointing out for decades: democracy in the United States is a sham.

It’s fascinating to see that the USA is now observably less democratic than Uganda and other African states where homosexual activities have been outlawed. Imagine if positions were reversed and the Ugandan people voted to legalized homosexuality, but a single official overturned them and announced that it would remain criminalized. What would the reaction of the US media be?
