Vox Populi, Vox Dei?
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?

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.
