I'm alright now, Jack

Black and Hispanic voters in California provided the extra ooomph for Proposition 8, a ban on gay marriage, to pass by a fairly slim margin. Without the big pro-Obama turnout among Black and Hispanic voters, who voted heavily against gay marriage rights, the proposition would have lost.
Like Jon Stewart, I was amazed the proposition was put forward by Mormons, a group of people who have had a rather interesting take on one man-one woman marriage.

One more reason to be a proud Canadian.

If Canadians had a chance to vote on this issue, you'd see a greater vote against gay marriage than what California did...Politicians bowed to the massively strong gay lobby.

I didn't know rights were something the majority could just vote away.
