  • Arkansas
  • California (with the passage of Prop 8)
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Idaho
  • Louisiana
  • Michigan
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • North Carolina

The term homophobic refers to fear of homosexuality. This term
often is used by homosexual activists to end rational discussion of the
issue by accusing their opponents of having an irrational fear. This is
unjust. One can disagree with and be critical of a behavior without
having a fear of it. When the charge of "homophobia" is made, it
signifies that those making the accusation do not have reasoned
responses to their critics, so they switch to portraying their critics
as irrational rather than responding to their arguments.

    Of course they are. These new polls that say Americans are in favor of Gay Marriage are nonsense. When the issue is put to voters they vote against gay marriage every time.

    The younger generation supports gay marriage, they just don't vote as often as older people. We'll see what happens in a few years.

    The religious bigots are just being more exposed than ever. Everyone of those states will get a huge surprise when SCOTUS overturns those laws.

    Never fear. The imperial Supreme Court will trump it all and find it in the Constitution somehow that gays are at least entitled to civil unions. That will be inevitable, if Obama gets to nominate one more Justice, (and the Court is presented with and accepts a case).

    In twenty years a more socially liberal (not necessarily politically liberal) generation will be voting, and I'm betting most of these states will have those laws/amendments repealed.
  • EllaBella 2012/05/09 12:46:31
    because no matter what the individual states may do, this is going to the Supreme Court at some point and i belive that we will see the Court stand on the side of freedom

    I certainly hope they are.

    What the Right Wing likes to call a "gay agenda" is in reality a respect for the United States Constitution. North Carolina's actions are a clear violation of the 14th Amendment, which provides:

    "No State shall . . . deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

    And the funniest part is how hard the Right Wing fights to pretend that the homophobia that motivates these regressive, discriminatory actions doesn't exist. Kind of like when they posted phony photos of Trayvon Martin and lied about him being a drug dealer and a gang member and then claimed that they aren't motivated by racism.

    I voted against it. What some people are unaware of is that gay marriage was already banned here in 1996.

    Twenty-eight states have already passed a constitutional amendment defining marriage as solely between a man and a woman. However, the amendment in North Carolina, where the state constitution already bans same-sex marriage, goes beyond current state law by preventing other forms of domestic unions from carrying legal status.

    Lawyers and campaigners for the anti-amendment campaign have warned that this could cause a host of problems for unmarried couples, including erasing health benefits for the children of public employees in certain parts of the state. They also say it could disrupt protection orders for unmarried couples and impact victims of domestic violence.
