Apparently that only applies to situations where the Court agrees with the liberal agenda. However in this case it doesn’t apply. For some reason the Supreme Court’s ruling can be ignored by the legislature when it suits them. Try and imagine the reaction if the measure on the ballot was to allow same-sex marriage. All the lawmakers who refused to vote would be branded fundamentalists and there would be talk of how the conservatives don’t believe in the Constitution only in G-d. However this is the liberals acting here so the talk is how they are getting copies of “Profiles in Courage” telling them to corageously not show up. How is it courage to evade your responsibility as a lawmaker to get what you want? Wouldn’t true courage be to go against the clear majority and vote your conscience? Apparently not.
