    Liberals and supporters of liberal policies are held to lower standards.

    If they didn't have lower standards then they would have none

    Hmmm, looks to me to be more of a age thing than a race thing. Look at that overwhelming majority support for gay marriage by the under 30 generation. Same sex marriage is inevitable kiddos. Better start accepting it now.

    I'm all for same sex marriage. I like it as a means to prevent abortions.

    For liberals, the question should be, "Why do blacks hate gays"

    it is mostly an age thing. but the boy troll o/p wouldn't understand that.

    it also is about the fact that blacks are church going people and would be a natural constituency for repubs if repubs didn't keep voting down social programs and pursuing their little southern strategy.

    stupid, huh?

    same as they're driving away hispanics.

    What 'social programs'? OH, like the 'Dream Act'? The Dream act would have gave the Illegals (criminals) a crutch to stay in OUR country. They are here ILLEGALLY wich makes them CRIMINALS!! The republicans know this, too bad most of everyone else don't. Republicans are NOT against hispanics in any way, they are against anyone who is here as a criminal. If they want to 'change' a government why don't they go back to their own country and 'demand' a change there?

    And as to the gay marrage, I am against gayness period. However, what people do that don't hurt anyone else is none of my busness and should not be the government's busness either. I don't think there should be a national ban. It is no ones busness what they do in private. And I think anyone should be able to say who gets the 'benifits' of what marrage gives a person's spouce. If that means they get married to that person then so be it. This is the main point of 'gay marrage'. They want to give the person what a marrage will give them legally and I think they should be able to do so.

    If the demographic was Southern Christian Fundamenalists or Gun Ownwers, that WOULD be the question asked of them.

    For those of us old enough to remember when Gay people didn't even exist in media or for that matter in the world of the commonplace, reality changes slowly but it changes. Consider attitudes towards gays just a few years ago under Reagan and aids. Life is constructed in the head and the head gets its information from other heads, slowly heads change and what seemed odd seems normal and what seems wrong seems fine.

    In the mid fifties, "generosity was voted the most conspicuous American characteristic, followed by friendliness, understanding, piety, love of freedom, and progressivism. The American faults listed were petty: shallowness, egotism, extravagance, preoccupation with money, and selfishness." William Manchester in "The Glory and the Dream" quoting George Gallup's Institute of public opinion.
