“The federal appeals court in Denver attempted to silence the voice of 70 percent of Oklahoma voters,” Sykes said in a statement. “At some point we have to decide whether this is a country of by and for the judges, or of by and for the people. How far will the people let them go? This ruling is right along with legalizing abortion and forced busing of school children.”

Legalizing abortion vs Banning an individual’s right to have his will honored.

I’m a big Roe v Wade supporter, but my right to choose doesn’t rest on my religion. By the way, Mr. Senator, in the United States, the majority should never get to approve prejudice. Damn Constitution, forcing South Carolina to let them darkies go…and that damn Alabama bullshit: Making white kids sit by colored kids! Ain’t no learning goin’ on while our kids gotta be afraid of germs.

America: land of the free Christian man. Doesn’t have the same ring as it did in the 1700’s. Except to bigots. Right, Mr. Sykes?
