How small to have rights?

Today’s Link

I ran across an interesting link today back in the UK.  The Christian Institute is claiming that there are two few LGBT people, according to the recent surveys on marriage equality, for the law to be changed.  In their words this is a monumental change on behalf of such a tiny proportion of society.

How small should a section of society be before it’s rights should be considered inconsequential then becomes the question.  Is it 1%, 5%, or 10%?  These are dangerous questions surely and the concept of precedent is an alarming one.  I wonder what the CI would think if the same yardstick were applied over religion….

Big love,
