Eventually people our age or older will die off as well, and this won't be an issue.
    I dont know I know a lot of young people who aren't for gay marriage, time will tell.

    Wow. First you say this:

    This is one of the biggest cop outs I've ever seen. You were only looking for an excuse but everyone here knows that you are as leftist as they come. 2nd, per this web site(your ilk runs), in 2008, there were 5.7 million registered voters in NC. 2.6 million Democrats, 1.9 Republicans, 1.2 independent. That means approximately 45% of all registered voters in NC identify themselves as Democrat while only 33% identify as Republican. To further the numbers, including the independents, 67% do not consider themselves as Republicans. That said, this measure passed with a 61% margin. I'd say that a good throng of Democrats voted for this measure as well. But you do your usual thing and continue to paint with that broad brush. Oh, and I'd venture to guess that a good number of blacks voted for this measure as well.

    Geography is a factor too. I'm in the urban east, where elements like religious fundamentalism are less of an influencer.

    Would you feel the same way if the vote went your way and those who oppose it took it to court? Most likely not. If the measure didn't pass, you and your ilk would be dancing in the streets talking about the will of the people but since it didn't go your way, you and your ilk want the courts to stiff arm what the people actually want. This is why you and your ilk are the biggest bunch of hypocrites walking.

    It was a novelty to have gay comedians and gays on TV shows in the 80's and by the 90's it was even trendy, I think support for gay causes will decline as people realize what a pain in the ass they are.
    How is obama working out for you?

    This fails on it's face. Blacks voted overwhelmingly in favor of Prop 8 in 2008. 70% to be exact. Latinos voted 53% in favor of it. Minorities tend to gravitate toward urban areas so it stands to reason that measures like this will get the support of minorities. Truth be told, blacks, while very leftist/Marxist when it comes to financial issues are very conservative when it comes to social issues.
