The answer is no. Why not? This country has the courts to prevent the majority from forcing it's will on a minority. Whether its a moral or religious issue, you or any majority don't have the option to tell someone else what they can or cannot do. If the majority was to vote on issues we'd still have slavery and women would still not vote. Maybe we should put whether blondes should be allowed on TV or whether radio talk show hosts should be on the air? Let's see if those measures pass or not.
The comments on this report come across very uneducated. Talking about "States rights", that was already a big part of the last election. That is how this topic is already being handled. "What country do I live in...", really? The reason for the court and legislative actions are due to the Constitution and Bill of Rights in the United States of America. This whole report is lacking any real understanding of the role of the different branches of government and any unbiased reporting. Besides any religious argument is null in this situation.
Also, separation of church and state is a foundation of our government and is there to prevent religion from being forced on to people that may not believe in the same way. Anyone preaching that same sex marriage should not be allowed b/c of religion is missing the point. The church can decide whatever it wants about the subject, but it cannot dictate that to the government and other people.
