california state senator william “pete” knight, author of the (passed) state proposition recognizing only marriage between a man and a woman, and whose son got “civil unionized” in vermont, on gay marriage: “This is the biggest public policy issue since slavery,” Knight said, his voice rising. “I don't believe that the judges or the Legislature ought to be making that decision. It ought to be the people of the country deciding.”

the more i think about it, the more astounding it is to me that someone opposed to gay marriage would even invite that comparison.
