    Hey, I'm old and I'm all for gay marriages! I think one of the reasons that the topic has gained more public support is that more and more gays are coming out of the closet, and society is realizing that *gasp!* gays are people just like them. In fact, they are learning that their favorite cousin, their best friend in high school, their own brother or sister... not to mention some of their favorite celebrities... are gay. The gay and lesbian community has become more open, more familiar, and they aren't the scarey folks people decades back made them to be... especially during the height of the HIV/AIDS revelations.

    Also, I think that many people are listening to homosexuals as they talk about how they never made a decision to be gay any more than the rest of us made a decision to be heterosexual. They just were. I believe that, and I think eventually science will be able to prove that sexual orientation is genetic. As society comes to the realization that sexual orientation, like race and gender, is something we are born with, then constitutional protections will be expanded to cover sexual orientation as well.

    As it should.

    Actually, the polling data does explain it quite clearly, since we only now hit crossed the majority line. So in the past when those votes where taken, they would have been further to the left on the graph.

    In Texas only 13% of the eligible voters even bothered to vote when gay gay marriage was on the ballot here. Considering the 87% that did not vote I would say the majority could care less whether or not that gays get married.

    True that about Texas. In the last governor's election, Perry won reelecton with only 36% of the vote. LOL.

    I'm waiting for the poll where Americans favor that the State should not monopolize the institution of marriage.

    Your wife didn't tell me they were going to vote for White for governor. Don't blame your wife in this. You chose to post it.

    That doesn't explain an 0-31 record. Did you miss that part of my post? Was it hard to see since it was at the beginning?

    BTW, do you disagree with the graph? If so, why? I think that is the issue, not which way you wish to tell people I lean. Care to explain what you think of the graph, or would you prefer to make another personal attack instead?
    Since you provided zero content on the story that goes with it. (this is me shocked) I cant. How about you produce the information that backs up the graphic or do you just randomly post what your wife tells you?

    Or are you just going to run away and hide again, like you did the last time I called you out on your dishonesty in a thread?
    Name that time Dan. Give me that link I'll be happy to go back and correct your false statement.
