"All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression."

- Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and one of the most influential Founding Fathers

    minorities by definition are applied to race and politics. Not sexual orientation/religion/social class…

  34. MizzM says – reply to this


    34

    ARE YOU FUCK SKULLS SERIOUS?!

  35. 35

    You Stupid ass people. Stay off his Site if you dont like what he has to say.

    Great Quote Perez!



  36. 36

    UM….i am almost positive that when he wrote/thought/said that he was
    1. NOT thinking of two men sticking their dicks up each others ass
    or
    2. two women fist fucking one another.
    .
    .

    just my thoughts………..



  37. 37

    Wise man. And way before his time.



  38. 38

    yeah who cares so what you cant marry im straight and dont even want to marry whats the big deal its not like they ruled againsts gays so be gay in private who cares



  39. 39

    Re: Baby B – go to hell you little suckass



  40. 40

    If you think this quote applies to homosexuals, then all that sperm swallowing has made you delusional.



  41. 41

    Using a quote from a hypocrite is a bit ridiculous. I don't think him saying those words helped the African Americans or for that matter his slaves.



  42. 42

    Re: La Diva – Do 5 in arow and we'll crown you the new mayor of Turd Town.



  43. 43

    im not challenging your intelligance but i need to get this out. half of the country didn't vote for obama and i voted for mccain so i feel jipped on that. i don't understand how it is fair to choose something when just half are for it, like prop 8. and second, obama doesn't believe in gay marriage!!!!!!! why is he a good thing again!?!? EVERYONE HAS A RIGHT TO MARRIAGE. It isn't a privilage, it's a right, love is natural. So can I protest in the streets for McCains sake??? Just seems unbalanced.



  44. 44

    "A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned." - Thomas Jefferson

    The majority of the people who voted yes on prop 8 also voted for your beloved Barack Obama.



  45. 45

    Re: rhoniluv – And slavery was justified by religious conviction. Whereas slavery was seen as an breech of civil rights, limiting civil rights to heterosexuals only will also be seen as inappropriate.



  46. 46

    Sorry, but the majority of the fathers of our country would have freaked if the topic of homosexuality had come up. It took a long time for people to become this accepting.



  47. 47

    HE WAS TALKING ABOUT POLITICAL PARTIES

    i have this posted on my wall in jefferson's own hand, also posted
    The people of every country are the only guardians of their own rights and are the only instruments which can be used for their own destruction.

    Re: rhoniluv – Who did he owe slaves to?

    "This… [is] a country where the will of the majority is the law, and ought to be the law." –Thomas Jefferson: Answers to de Meusnier Questions, 1786. ME 17:85

    There ya have it Pigez…



  51. 51

    guess what, there isnt even a right to straight marriage in the constitution! marriage is NOT a right. stop calling it one. the people of california spoke. get over it. maybe you should press to get the same treatment thru civil unions that married couples get.



  52. 52

    boy perez you screwed up on this quote of the day!



  53. 53

    I don't care if Jefferson was a hypocrite, his words are true.



  54. 54

    Um… that quote didn't apply to blacks or gays or women. It was intended for white males of varying social classes. When he says majority and minority, he is talking about it in the political sense… not the ethnic, gender or sexual sense. So… pretty lame quote of the day.



  55. 55

    ….Uhhhh…..for some reason I don't think good ol' TJ was meaning homos when he used the word "minority". Nice try though, fag!



  56. 56

    Re: hcar84 – Please feel free to protest in the streets for McCain, if you have nothing better to do with your time. The difference in protesting for a candidate which did not win and protesting for the restoration of civil rights to all is this: there is one citizen who lost, McCain (you retained your right to vote, and your right to protest), in contrast to the hundred of thousands of citizens who lost rights in the Prop 8 vote.



  57. 57

    Everyone does have an equal right to get married. You just can't marry your a blood relative or someone of your own gender. This is for biological reasons. So, by all means, exercise your right to get married.



  58. 58

    Re: harrybalsac – Oh really!!! what an honor…. You better crown me too fuckface….



  59. 59

    you actually think he was talking about gay marriage??????



  60. 60

    Wow!! You went back in the day for that quote.



  61. 61

    "All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.""Except ball garglers and rug munchers."



  62. 62

    Wow!! You went back in day for that quote!!



  63. 63

    Re: FAGS SHOULD BE SMOKED! – You seem to think about gay sex a lot. Does it give you pleasure?

  64. meme says – reply to this


    64

    Unfortunately, even Thomas Jefferson didn't really mean that statement. I have a hunch he wasn't referring to gay marriage either. You are not going to prove any points by quoting any of the founding fathers who undoubtedly would be very against gay marriage.



  65. 65

    Glad I'm not the only one who is sick of this redundant bullshit



  66. 66

    are you being serious???
    Gay marriage is NOT an equal rights issue!
    Perez, no one is stopping you from marrying a person of the opposite sex.
    To say it is an equal rights issue is like me being mad that I can't marry the 14 year old I "fell in love" with. See what I mean??



  67. 67

    In 1787 (the year the Constitution was adopted) James Madison, the "Father of the Constitution" and fourth president said "We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future .. upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to sustain ourselves, according to the Commandments of God." The founding fathers were devout Christians who intended for this nation to follow God's will as found in the Bible. God has blessed America because for most of its history America blessed God. As this country turns further and further from Him, how long will He continue to do so???

    68

    Great quote!! Don't give up the fight for your rights Perez!! I support you 100%



  69. 69

    Re: MATTYKANSAS – Perez is applying a quote about MINORITIES (which is about race or politics) and applying it to being homosexual.



  70. 70

    Um, good shit and all, but didn't he own slaves? That's not much for giving the minority equal rights.

  71. SoCal says – reply to this


    71

    In Jefferson's day if you were caught being a fag you would be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail. So is that what you are wanting, Perez??

  72. SoCal says – reply to this


    72

    "the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail"

    You have the right to marry a woman, Perez, so shut the fuck up.



  73. 73

    Please, he was talking about women or blacks if anything. You're not a minority, you CHOSE to be that way. No where does it say he's talking about gays. Get over it, people believe what they believe, YOU CAN'T CHANGE THAT!!!!!!!!! P.S. Religion comes before the U.S. Constitution any day. PERIOD.



  74. 74

    Re: The Warden – Well said!!!!!!



  75. 75

    This is the same Thomas Jefferson as the one who owned slaves?



  76. 76

    Pushing your pro-fag agenda AGAIN sodomite? Enough of this filth already!! get over yourself! The gays do NOT rule the world!



  77. 77

    Re: b a t k i s s – yea….it makes me fucking hot. especially fist fucking. HOT STUFF THERE!!



  78. 78

    GET OVER IT PEREZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  79. 79

    Marriage isn't a "right". If it were a "right" it wouldn't matter if you wanted to practice polygamy or bigamy or marry any of your family members, animals or inanimate objects. Anyone would be able to marry underage children. Everyone would have the "right" to do any of those things.

    Legal "rights" under the law are what matter. All legal "rights" are available to any same sex domestic partnership right now, all day, every day in California.



  80. 80

    Re: hcar84 – I'm pretty sure more than "just half" voted for Obama… he had HOW many electoral votes again?

  81. anni says – reply to this


    81

    too bad jefferson was one of the biggest hypocrites in american history. not only was he talking about slaves, but at the time this statement was made he owned well over 200 slaves. let it go perez… you talk out of your ass a lot… a WHOLE lot



  82. 82

    An elderly woman bearing a cross who attended a gay marriage protest to voice her support of the California ban was attacked by demonstrators and may now press charges.



  83. 83

    Look Fat Body you idiot. All though I do agree with the No on 8 this is an argument with religion and not with the constitution. Last time I checked gay people do have equal rights but it is the definition of marriage as it reads in the religious texts that you seem to have issues with. Keep taking it up with the church, they are the ones in need of help.



  84. 84

    STFU already saggy tits! It's over, you lost! Stop whining!



  85. 85

    minority ?? meaning gey gey gei ppl are minorities?!? hahahahaha please!!! all minority please relocate to hawaii or boston where it legal there! get out of cali if you want to get married! marriage is just a piece of paper anyways and should be meaningless. so get over it. prop H8TE passed! the ppl have spoken!



  86. 86

    Since when do liberals quote a dead white presidents? Only when it suits them.

  87. BBGUN says – reply to this


    87

    Re: FAGS SHOULD BE SMOKED!

    LOL…brilliant as usual.



  88. 88

    Funny their was speculation on him having homosexual affairs as well if you look into it ;)



  89. 89

    Re: whooshy1 – nah, it's the OTHER thomas jefferson.



  90. 90

    Pity you don't extend to others those rights which you demand, you're a fraud , a liar and a cruel creep. You are also the last person who should be advocating for anything to do with Human Rights. Simply because, in you, transparently lurks a little Hitler.



  91. 91

    ]Re: The Warden[/re] no you stupid shit head, it's because life is constantly changing and evolving. just like segregation and slavery in our past, people said the same thing about that that you just said. now those people just look hella shameful and their true colors of HATE shine. you are an ugly ugly person. you have no soul. just greed fear and hate.



  92. 92

    God you're all so lost. I feel so sorry for you all.



  93. 93

    Bye ugly ugly ugly ones. TAA



  94. 94

    Hey Letty! Looks like a fuckfest is already happening! Whoo hoo! Where's there's a Balsac…



  95. 95

    Good quote! Minorities are often oppressed by those that don't understand them. It's sad that some of these people on this site can't and don't see that, and I also find it funny that they keep on coming back to read the gossip.

    You obviously have an impact on how people think by your blog post, so keep up the good work!



  96. 96

    Sigh. Unrelated, but I've firmly decided that which does not kill the hate-mongering republicans without a doubt makes them batshit crazy.



  97. 97

    thats right protect against tyranny of the majority….see federalist # 51



  98. 98

    too bad he's dead



  99. 99

    Re: topper – Your statement is completely untrue.
    -
    Sigh, I'm sick of liars. Biggest, fattest Liar of all is Palin.

    -She now has, on video record, three different versions of how she received nomination from McCain - 3 totally opposite stories — this woman is crazy.
    -
    Honestly, it borders on Pathological — does she NOT understand that TV shows are TAPED, and when she makes up a 3rd fake story, others can go back and review the first 2?????
    -
    this woman has head problems.



  100. 100

    Unfortunatly the "religious right" only care about the constitution or the men that wrote it, when there talking about guns.
    If your not outraged your not paying attention!
