    Because they’re in the minority and democracy is sooooo goshdarn unfair.

    When courts uphold marriage equality (in Iowa, for example), the homophobes said, “Those judges are legislating from the bench! Laws should be passed by the legislature.”

    When a legislature passes a law for marriage equality (in Washington state, for example), they said, “Oh no, this is too much! We must let the people decide. We’ll vote on it.” Then WA voters voted for equality and fairness for LGBT people.

    Now they’re saying, “We need the Supreme Court to stand on the side of right against wrong.” Hey, wait a minute, isn’t that legislating from the bench?

    I think they know they’ll eventually lose. When the courts and the legislatures and the voters are against you, maybe you will lose the argument. They’re like the old guy shouting “Hey, you kids, get off my lawn!” Or the guy shouting at the weather.
