conservatives did get some help from the black vote

http://news.yahoo.com/s/time/2008110...edincalifornia

Gays came back in some polls, but they couldn't pull out a win. Part of the reason is that Obama inspired unprecedented numbers of African Americans to vote. Polls show that black voters are more likely to attend church than whites and less likely to be comfortable with equality for gay people. According to CNN, African Americans voted against marriage equality by a wide margin, 69% to 31%. High turnout of African Americans in Florida probably help explain that state's lopsided vote to ban same-sex weddings.

With all the talk about how the coming liberal administration is going to be the downfall of America, maybe you can see a little more light down that tunnel with the defeat of the homosexual marriage legislation. For those who think African Americans are racist, I guess you can add homophobic to your list as well.

It points out that blacks are more likely to be homophobes. Is that a racist bias?

LOL!

One would think that with all the recent harping about equality from the obama sheeple, all who voted for him would be in full support of equal rights for gays.

I really don't think gay marriage should be banned. It's their choice who they want to be with, be it male or female. My company, be it a huge corporation, this enrollment has announced that they will be able to add their "partner" to their insurance.

I'm not sure where people get the idea that they can control someone else's life.
