Roundup of opinion on LGBT Issues and Tuesday's Election

Is in the Opinionator.  It displays the breadth of opinion on the issue.  One thing I'd like to see mentioned is that it was the intention of the fournders, specifically James Madison, that the rights of minorities should never be determined by majority vote... that, instead, everyone would have equal rights.  Our definition of those rights and who should be covered by them has expanded since the Constitution became our supreme law, and giving LGBT people equal rights is seen by many of us as one of the last steps in fulfilling the promise of the Constitution.
