The next time you hear somebody calling this proof of an “activist court” take issue with them. What they are saying is that a court should only base its decision on feeling and opinion, not on legal (provable) fact.

The next time you hear somebody say this was an “anti-democratic” decision because it overturned the voters’ will, remind them that democracy has its limits, too. That line is always reached when it abridges the legal right of another person.
