Steve Deace: Liberal spin on “rights” is wrong

By Tom Quiner

The Iowa Senate won’t allow a vote on a marriage amendment.

Why? Senate Democrats say they won’t let a majority determine someone elses’s rights.

Here is radio host, Steve Deace’s response:

“The next time some propagandist tells you we don’t let a majority vote on someone’s rights, tell them sure we do. They’re called juries, and from the beginning of the Republic we’ve been allowing them to vote on taking rights away from those who behave immorally.”

And for the record, such a marriage vote is not taking rights away from anyone. It is simply a matter of defining the institution of marriage according the functional intent of the institution.
