    Alabama or Mississippi if ever. Here in Georgia we had an enlighten governor that put my state ahead of the rest of the south although he didn't do too good as president.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    probably good guesses

    wasnt it mississippi that actually tried to go back to not allowing interracial marriage and like 60% of their GOP think its wrong. thats crazy

    of course that isnt meant to condemn normal people that are from there and GOPers.

    Florists are a business, not a religion. It's clearly unconstitutional for a church to be forced to perform gay weddings, but hey, there is almost a decade of data in some states. Can you point to a single church that has been forced? Personally i would take my money elsewhere, but it's not the same thing.

    I understand. I hadn't heard that but I wouldn't doubt it either.

    I don't think it would be hard to find a gay florist that would be extremely happy to provide the flowers for a gay wedding.

    The poll questions are biased and misleading. Voting against SSM ins't voting against equal rights. Voting for a federal overhaul on marriage invalidating the state constitutions that do not recognize SSM is the violation of equality with the rights of those states and voters being stomped on.

    I would vote no for a national vote on "equal rights" as far as "equal rights" meaning forcing a definition of marriage upon everyone and among states that do not recognize that definition. I am voting for equal rights, not against them.
