Hypocrisy."Tell the radical Left it is time to stop spreading hateful rhetoric attacking individuals and organizations merely for expressing ideas with which they disagree," the petition reads. "Our debates can and must remain civil – but they must never be suppressed through personal assaults that aim only to malign an opponent's character."

Popular does not equate with correct or right. The merits of the arguments were heard in Perry v. Schwarzenegger in a court of law where emotionalism and demagoguery don't get very far."So what they want to do is shut down all debate over issues," he said, noting that voters in 31 states have rejected laws allowing gay marriage. "They can't win in this debate so they want to throw out labels."
