Vox Populi, Vox Dei?

"Let all those who have a view on this subject place their trust in the Scottish people and let Scotland decide," His Eminence said — Scottish cardinal calls for referendum on same-sex 'marriage'.

Your Eminence may have the numbers now, like every state in the union on these shores that has voted on the matter thus far, but what happens when you do not? The precedent, so important in our Anglo-Saxon legal tradition, has been set. A better approach is to simply teach the truth and get the state out of marriage. Rather than attempt to legislate what people do in the privacy of their bedrooms (or more accurately choose to call what they do therein), let us pray for them.

There is no "vox populi", only voices.

And there may come a time wherein all these voices speak out for evil. I wonder where we will turn to then? Its not as simple as deposing a bad monarch.

And democracy was supposedly the least evil of all the governments mankind has come up with... I don't buy it.
