Gay marriage is not winning in the deep South. It will have to be by judicial fiat after all of the other blue and purple states adopt gay marriage.
Believe me that it’s only a matter of time before the guilt trips kick in. The idea that disagreement hurts is ever-prevalent in this hot button issue.
Second, the whole marriage issue should be more appealing now that the promise is exemption based on not taking government funding.
Third, it simply won’t be the popular way to go. You will be considered weird because your group doesn’t marry same-gender couplings.
As a final note, wired is not bad in today’s world anymore.
Matter of time, I fear. The schools churn out liberals every year and they come across the border everyday. No, last night didn’t leave me very optimistic about our future.
The deep red states are not going to vote for gay marriage any time in my lifetime, but I think we are going to see a lot more blue and purple states voting for it in the next few years.
The current Supreme Court is not going to hold that gay marriage is a constitutional right, but Obama may get more Supreme Court appointments in the next four years.
More importantly, I think there is a 50-50 chance that even the current Supreme Court would hold that, under the Constitution's Full Faith and Credit Clause, every state must recognize a marriage that was legal in the state where it was entered into.
