NJ Gov takes back civil rights comments

The logic here is convoluted, but he’s basically saying that a referendum on a minority’s rights is impermissible if the minority would lose. Which isn’t either enshrining rights beyond majority rule or democracy-always.

It isn’t democracy if the results can be pulled when your side loses; it’s just wasting people’s time.
