...because if I did some people would get pissed.
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.

Related. 25 other bills died on the calendar in the name of intolerance and bigotry in CO yesterday.
http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_20578893/colorado-civil-unions-bill-passes-last-committee-supporters?_requestid=8509015
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.

if the shoe fits?

“This amendment has always been about one thing and one thing only, marriage and family,” said Bishop Phillip Davis, pastor of Nations Ford Community Church, a black congregation in southwest Charlotte. “The voters of North Carolina have chosen to protect the soul of the state and the nation; that is marriage and family.”

Hey look, some polling data!

-Support for the amendment is now more narrow among African Americans (53/43) than it is among white voters (56/41), suggesting that the efforts of the NAACP and other black leaders have had some impact in eroding support for it.

-There continues to be a massive generational gap with seniors (60/36) strongly in support of the amendment and young voters (33/59) strongly opposed.

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.

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...

.....yeah voting was fun yesterday.
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.

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

Hiding from the stupid
Guess who just lost North Carolina?
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.


Edited to add this:
PPPolls said:
On national poll last weekend we found most voters opposed to legal recognition for gay couples ALREADY think Obama supports gay marriage

I have no idea where I am
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.
