    i've never said it's any different, with exception of a few small cities. I've never been anything but critical of michigan, and there's a nauseating number of confederate flag hillbillies here too

    The thing to keep in mind is sociologically we are at another pivot point. It is not really about my opinion but an obersavtion of how this issue has played out. In a relatively short amount of time we have seen State by State fall in their protections of keeping a marriage about a man and a woman, for whatever reason. 10 years ago this issue was just starting to challenge more of the States. And within the past 20 years you had a Democratic president sign the Defense of Marriage Act (but it should be noted the veto proof Republican Congress that brought this up.) All throughout we have filled the courts with challenges and started to see a change in public support, with a few surprises along the way. Like the California vote on the matter. But all that said, the tide is changing well enough and I suspect when history looks back it will not be too kind to those who stood in opposition to what we are seeing. With plenty of parallels drawn to what the civil rights movement faced 60+ years ago. The pictures of the various opposition will be next to each other, and I suspect the comparison will be harsh.
