    Youre worried bout people getting pissed because you stand up for equal rights?
    How about gay couples being offended by these religious assholes?

    Seriously, its time to stop being appologetic towards religious biggotry just because you dont wanna step on religious toes...
    Its time for people to wake the **** up and smell the coffee that is the 21 centrury.

    I, uh, have a reputation for being "anti-South" here on P&WN, so I'm trying to tread lightly when stupid slackjaw redneck assholes patriotic Americans do something reprehensible South of the Mason Dixon line.

    It's OK Dante, I think it is warranted this time. You can count me in the 39% minority though.

    On the plus side:

    1) The bill's supporters had enough votes to pass the bill in CO. It's only a matter of time before it passes, as the trend has been towards accepting gay marriage instead of opposing it. Republicans can push off the bill for a year or two, but as NY has shown eventually it will pass.
    2) In NC Republicans had to schedule to the referendum on a *GOP primary* election, as opposed to scheduling it at the November general election. I wonder if it would have failed if they'd scheduled it for then?

    Interestingly, the local NPR station had an interview this morning with a republican Rep who had supported the bill, bemoaning the fact that this move will probably kill the Republicans come November in CO.

    Yes, because a few racist Bruins fans somehow equates 58% of the voting population.... Thank god for moral equivalency.

    Probably would have the same outcome.

    It's pretty tough to protect the rights of a minority in ANY general referendum, let alone a vote in the south.

    Clearly this is just a southern thing. California prop 8 passed because California is in the south.

    I don't know who is saying it's just a southern thing. But it's certainly prevalent in the south.

    I didn't say it was just a southern thing. It's just another issue that not only has a political divide but seems to also have a geographical divide.

    Unfortunately you have to go pretty far North to cross it....



    Of course, the Southern states seem to have embraced the anti-gay-marriage theme a bit more strongly than the rest of the country, both passing laws *and* amending their constitutions to prohibit it...

    You telling me there's no such thing as a black stupid slackjaw redneck? Especially when it comes to tolerance of homosexuals?

    Nagger please.

    If freaknic was still going on, I'd dress you up in gown, some sweet eyeshadow, put a wireless POV camera on you and monitor from a safe distance.

    Orange county where that mess had the most traction is the south california.


    I still say 'the south' is applicable since there's nothing culturally redeeming anywhere south of about the 37th lattitude.

    One thing the south does have going for it, Zaxbys. Not having Zaxbys up north probably helped me lose at least 10 lbs after graduating college.

    It's not like his previous waffling on the issue was his most attractive feature. NC blue hairs were not going to vote for him anyway but younger voters may be more motivated to vote. I would have to guess it would be a wash.

    Being a long time NC resident I often think of leaving after listening to the mouth breathers spew their bigotry towards anyone who is not just like them. But we have some of the best trails the country has to offer.
