6 people voted no, which is exactly what I expected and imagine there will not be anymore on here.
So it seems the minority do dictate to the majority.

Yes, I most certainly do.
As far as the decision process goes, well, here's reality. This forum is filled mostly with women aged between 20-35 and then all are parents. Not only that, most are those who are a little more "new age" with modern ideas. Attachment parenting, water or home birthing, Breastfeeding till the child is 3. You know what I mean? I love you guys, but what I'm getting at is that this is only one tiny demographic of the country's population.
Now, the thing that sucks? Political parties and politicians don't care about people's liberties or right and wrong. They care about votes, as votes equal power and, on a personal level, money. And currently, when you look at the rest of the population - the typically older, old fashioned, homophobic, "fag" hating, "men should be men" types have, unfortunately, influence still.
Until a political party feels that it will win and election by having a "pro gay marriage" stance, they won't do it based on the homophobic portion of the population possibly costing them an election.
I hate politics.

This forum is not really a snapshot of society though, is it? It is mostly women aged 20 - 45.
