Whoever made this map and correlation is ghey, I am originally from Wilmington, N.C. all of the places with the highest degree percentages are where the universities are LOCATED also meaning younger urban hubs that are not under the influence of the old Republican Jessie Helms belief system. The state is getting more progressive as time passes; and the bible belt drifts even further south with all the old bible thumpers dying off, whom keep ignorant laws on the books...

If you followed this at all, it`s not about the definition of marriage, they already had that one pass their political machine. This one affects other couples too... Not just gay couples. They already have a law on the books that says marriage is between a man and a woman.

@angillon. It is possible this is less about the definition of homosexuality, and more about the definition of marriage, for many on all sides of this issue.


Regarding higher education, I have met people educated way beyond their intelligence, and they were actually dumber than a fence post. I have met people with little formal education, but nevertheless highly intelligent, informed, and very astute in understanding a wide range of issues. Things may not actually be as simple and straightforward as this set of maps seems to imply....

Have you ever tried to hold a conversation with someone who got a degree in Feminist Studies?

Most colleges nowadays are just socialist boot camps. Half the degrees they grant aren`t work the paper they`re printed on let alone $200K in debt.

OutWest: getting a degree certainly doesn`t make you dumber, does it? It`s not a question of smart or dumb, it`s a question of world view. Those that go to college are exposed to different people, different ideas, and different lifestyles. Simple as that.

It`s obvious... college graduates should have more voting power.

I actually think my poll worker was trying to influence me to vote when I walked in and said, `I`m just here to vote on amendment one.` Then I found out my vote may not even count because of a BOE dratup. Still, most of NC voted based purely on religious beliefs and not college education. Still stupid nonetheless.

Blacks Supported This Vote by a 2:1 margin, so it follows:
Most blacks are Democrats: that means the Democrates rejected gay marriage.

All those heaping abuse on the people who voted yes? You`re all RACISTS!! LMAO!

(no not really, I just think it`s funny how y`all have overlooked the obvious: American Blacks simply don`t support gay marriage, by 2:1 in this case)

LOL... people that don`t agree of course are not intelligent.

As if... getting a degree makes you wiser, smarter, and able to make better choices.

This type of validation always cracks me up.

The election was Tuesday, and the state voted FOR the ban, not against it!

Not even that - it`s not really clear what the Christian bible says about homosexuality. Not least because the modern concept of homosexuality didn`t really exist back then, not in the same way. That`s why the handful of possible references are to homosexual sex, not to homosexuality - people back then generally thought in terms of people doing homosexual things, not people being homosexual.

I wrote "possible references" deliberately, because it really isn`t anywhere near as clear as it`s made out to be by the dubious interpretations of bad translations that are what appear in bibles from the last 1500 years or so.

If anyone cares, I`ll explain. Anyone who wants to look for themselves could search "arsenokoitai" for a good start.

Although this doesn`t strictly prove anything, it certainly indicates that homophobia is caused by ignorance. Which honestly makes sense.. If you really think rationally about homosexuality and gay marriage, there`s only one conclusion. Opposing it is pointless, because it doesn`t [quote]actually[/quote] affect anyone else but those having buttsex/getting married..

The percentage of BAs can be found on the US census website. The counties who voted for or against is a matter of public record. This graph is accurate.

What is this measured against? Where is the data to back this up? All we have is a colored map, and absolutely no data to back it up. How many people were surveyed? Proving a statistical point requires more than here say, or is that beyond the original poster`s intellectual capacity?

If you want to make a comparison, I would suggest actual data.

I`m well educated and I`m not liberal. The two do not necessarily correlate, just like these two maps have no true correlation. I mean, it`s talking about bachelor`s degrees, for god`s sake. They hand out bachelor`s degrees in communications and psychology to every dumbass these days.

Kinda hard to get out of your politics when we`re inundated with US politics posts all the time. If you don`t want us in your backwards politics then stop blabbing about them all the time.

Basically, you sound like a dumb b*tch showing off cleavage and then getting mad when someone comments on it. Way to go, bro, you`ve won the interwebz.

@5cats

Length of time being educated has not bearing on wherther or not a person is liberal in thinking. Using your logic, people who are educated are liberal, those who are not arr conservative. using your logic, I would rather have a liberal doctor or laywer, because hey...at least they are educated.

Also, this amendment will be overturned, because they majority can not make a law against excluding minority. If that were the case, many southern states would still have slavery and segregation.

If those who are educated are exposed to more liberal thinking, then those who are not are exposed to more conservative thinking and every presidential election would be in favor of republicans. That is not the case, so your argument is invalid. Also, you are in canada, which is barely a country to begin with, so get out of our politics.

you cant base your religious beliefs on the laws of this country. kinda how the constitution was set up.

Being profoundly color blind, the graphics mean nothing to me. I will say that I reside in a more `liberal` area of the state, and view Raleigh- from which this initiative was conceived- with the same jaundiced eye that I view the maniacs of the westboro baptist church.

how do you know anything about what college is like?

IF you went to college YOU ARE PROOF your theory is wrong.

IF you did not go to college, well then you are just talking out your ass.

I have three degrees and somehow I am not a radical liberal...imagine that.

The education level does come into play if you look at it from a religious standpoint. The majority of atheists/agnostics tend to be well educated as opposed to those who are more religious. So if you look at the breakdown of how the different counties voted you`ll see those who are on average more educated voted in favor of allowing gay marriage and those who are less educated voted against it.

Ignorant hillbillies who have yet to master the arts of `soap` and `toothbrushes` oppose gay marriage.

Wow, what a shocker.

indoctrinated=education? If you`re indoctrinating me with the facts, then im happy to be indoctrinating... It`s funny how places that are centered around factual education tend to be more progressive... It`s quite telling really.

So people are "indoctrinated" for their whole lives by their church and families, which is OK, but then 4 years of higher education "indoctrinates" them to erase that silliness and it is wrong?

@holy While true many higher education people lose faith, Baptist, black protestants and catholics all show an increase to religious belief( per a `06 Portraits of American Life Study)

@broizfam: If you hit F5 or click refresh it sometimes re-posts your last post. Weirness eh?

Universities are bastions of leftist teachings. Getting a 4 or 6 years degree means you`ve spent a lot of time amoung hard-core leftists (porfessors) and their dogma.

And people voted Yes on the Amendment in order to ban gay marriage in their state, 61% vs 39% iirc...

The education level is irrelevant. The morals you hold have nothing to do with higher education. With that said I am a college senior who apposes gay marriage, but also thinks its not the states business to govern the intimate relations of others.

Not sure where you`re going with that. Is education far left by definition? Not like your usual commentary. I`d like to think you`re being tongue-in-cheek not head-in-butt.
