Connecticut is a pretty diverse state. Lots of Jews, Italians, Irish, Hispanics, and blacks. It is not all Scotch- Irish.
nah, usually the very upper class of a society, no matter where it is, is the most educated, therefore more liberal. Even in the South you see this. They tend to be Episcopalian or Presbyterian, which are liberal denominations.

Yeah @ Houston's Parade, the Lesbo Mayor was there of course, The Candidate for Governor (Bill White) was there, there were about 3 house Reps, and many other state and local officials. There were also floats with gay cops and ones with gay firemen. what surprised me were the number of church floats at the parade. I am not fond of churches raining on my parade.

Will not be tolerated? You sound like a dictator.

Gay behavior is not just limited to marriage. The United States Supreme Court ruled that "gay activities" inside a private dwelling are a protected privacy interest under the US Constitution.

Can you believe this guy? This is the norm in NC, why people think NC is all that is beyond me.

Most everyone I have met from Charlotte is actually very friendly. It's a nice city. Can't speak for the rest of NC, but something tells me this guy is not from Charlotte.

I'm starting to think he doesn't actually believe these things, but is bored and wants to provoke a reaction.

If the Supreme Court is a joke, I'm sure you wouldn't mind not being read your Miranda Rights at arrest, not having an attorney in court, and not having the right to a criminal jury trial?

Could be, but still to even think things like this these days, is beyond me.

He wants to protect the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, but he is divorced....

If gay people shouldn't be allowed to marry, then why can straight people divorce?
