Gay Marriage Banned

November 5, 2008 permalink

In yesterday's American election, voters in California, Arizona and Florida banned same-sex marriage. In Arkansas voters approved a ban on placing children with unmarried foster parents, ending foster care by gay couples. In the post-mortem, analysts say opposition to gay marriage was stronger among blacks than whites. Maybe it is because black voters have more experience with the family destruction system. The proponents who got California judges to legalize gay marriage earlier this year are already planning to get judges to declare the voice of the voters invalid.
