Actually in this case most voters didn`t actually know the text of the law they were passing.

Move along, move along. Nothing to see here. Just liberals flinging their poo at people who disagree with them. That`s right, keep it moving...

@Cajun, it is interesting how this vote is so completely different than the national polls, eh?

I think it`s the "NIMBY" effect: people generally agree that it ought to be `legal`, but when it comes time to actually vote on it they have second thoughts.

Like windfarms. People gush about how great they are, until someone tries to build one near them!

I used to be more "against" gay marriage than I am now. Now I`m like: go on, get married, have fun!
I`d still prefer that the government stayed out of our bedrooms though...

It should be up to the states, but any state that doesn`t pass a gay marriage law is a bigot.

This is from the 2011 Gallop Poll. The majority of Americans support gay marriage. The new poll should be coming out in a few days. Should be interesting what the results are.

@markust: get back to work! As a friend I give you positive reinforcement.

I`ve admitted being wrong many times! Why not more often? Becasue I`m RIGHT (correct) so dang much, that`s why!
The ultra-lefties here? They NEVER EVER admit they are wrong, ignoring overwhelming evidence, changing the subject or simply blindly repeating themselves. We all know the worst offenders.

Liberals: The majority of people support this!
Reality: Not!

So sorry gay rights supporters, but Democracy cuts both ways, eh?

There`s LOTS of "right wing" issues that WOULD pass a majority vote, ever think of that?

It`s funny (to me at least) how quickly the left swings from "let everyone vote!" to "how dare they vote about such an important issue".

Not a proud moment living in this state.... Luckily I don`t have to call it my own, as I am only here because the military told me to. I`ll be headed home next year.

Hopefully when the older generation dies and the current one runs the country, this thinking will die with them. 20 more years.

"The real problem is that civil rights issues are being put to a vote."

That is exactly why the opposition screams so loud that this is not a civil rights issue. They don`t want people to know the truth. Same reason they pretend that being gay is a choice. They don`t want people to know the truth. Because if people have all the facts they will lose. How they get the black community to buy into that BS is beyond me.

I need to get the hell off of here or I will be working until 9pm.

@Cajun247 I was talking about how frustrating it is that they are not able to admit when they are wrong not about their stance on gay marriage.

"Your statement could also be said of the more left-leaning people on here too."

You are correct, I should have included a few of the IAB crazy liberals. I actually was going to include one of the Mod`s in the list but I always get his name confused with someone else. I didn`t want to call out the wrong guy.

I`m really responding to tell you that your last line cracked me up.

The real problem is that civil rights issues are being put to a vote. As you pointed out, ballot initiatives are more about one side galvanizing to win or defeat a measure than about the will of the population. Also, a majority cannot be counted on to defend the rights of a minority.

"But it`s a little unfair to single North Carolina out, when our "liberal" state is backwards on this issue too."

My "liberal" state Washington just passed marriage equality. There are two hurdles. Will the opposition get enough signatures for an initiative? Will the opposition get enough people to vote against their fellow man? I think it will be on the ballot because of church leaders pushing bigotry (they need an enemy to rally their troops against). How about this for an enemy; hate and intolerance. But I think washington will be the first state to pass marriage equality by a vote of the people. We passed Civil Unions by a vote.

I`ve heard AJ admit wrong before. Your statement could also be said of the more left-leaning people on here too. I don`t like it when anyone doesn`t admit when they`re wrong, and it happens a lot on here.

Since I`m rarely wrong this doesn`t affect me that much. ;-)

"President Obama, and the liberal left on this site, share the same trait."

Actually President Obama is pretty good at admitting when he and our leadership is wrong. The right gives him sh*t about this all the time.

"It`s a stalemate that cannot be solved."

No it`s not. You be the bigger man. Strength and growth comes from admitting when you are wrong.

"I wish this were true."

It is if you turn off cable news, partisan news radio and stop reading partisan political blogs.

It`s because when it is proved that you are wrong you can not for the life of you admit your mistake. It is the quality I hated most about our last President. Not being able to admit when you are wrong is a sign of insecurity and weakness.

I think your point is that you are so partisan you have trouble with the truth. We are just Americans. We are not conservative or liberals.

I guess AJ was kind of not lying but he wasn`t telling the whole truth which is the same as lying. 2 of the 4 House sponsors were Democrats. All the sponsors in the Senate including the main sponsor were Republicans. Also the Governor did not support the bill: Amendment 1

My point is this.

Conservatives: Here is our bill. It is drated up. It is a piece of poo. Vote for it.

Liberals: Here is our wonderful bill, that will make life easier for everyone. It is progressive and everyone will love it. We don`t know if it`s a piece of poo. You gotta vote for it, to know what`s in it!

Believe me Markust, it was hard for me to type those words. Maybe he made that point unintentionally.

But it`s a little unfair to single North Carolina out, when our "liberal" state is backwards on this issue too.

AJ does make a point, though. Prop 8 passed here in California in part by galvanizing the largely liberal African American vote. That just proves that it`s a cultural issue as well as a political one.

"The bill was proposed and sponsored by the house majority leader, and the governor. Both are democrats."

It was sponsored by Republican State Senator Peter Brunstetter: SB 514

Just because he`s a North Carolina Democrat it doesn`t make him a liberal.

Auburn, they may be democrats, but how liberal are the democrats in North Carolina really? I would guess they are more conservative than the the republicans in Maine.

Again with the retarded? lmao

That is like saying, "You don`t want equality for all? You`re officially a cracker."

You are insulting someone using a term that is derogatory to others. Stupid is stupid.
