"This is a clear case of the court overrruling the will of the majorty," (sic) Connie Mackey of the Family Research Council said on CNN.

From http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2003-11-18-gay-marriage_x.htm

Hey Connie, I hate to break this to you, but that's exactly what the Constitution and the judicial system are in place to do, keep the minority from being oppressed by the majority.

My guess is that Connie did not see it that way in the Gore/Bush presidential election. I would have to guess that she did not care about the majority then. Interesting to see people skew the importance of things toward what ever they are for.
