This is the 2nd major poll to show 55+% support for marriage equality in Virginia.

Hmmm, could THAT be why the anti-gays refuse to allow another vote?

Yep, JUST as predicted, they quickly drop their "let the people vote" mantra as soon as polls show they no longer are assured a win.

Virginia is for lovers! About time they included the LGBT community in their slogan.

If it were the other way around, they would be strutting around with their chests poofed out, the way fat pigeons do in the park.

They thought they were invincible, what with God on their side and all and for awhile there, they were right. They aren't, not any more and likely not anywhere, but they're going to go down in a perpetual spin of ugly silliness.
When you get right down to it, we're giving them pretty much everything they ever wanted from us, but we're giving them heteronormative homosexuality, instead of actual heterosexuality. We settle for our version of their Family Circus and forgo much of the wild, Wilde life and they still complain. Some day they may just get that our problem isn't that we are aren't heterosexual, but those who imagine it is.

BUT NOT NOW, FAGG@T
What ARE you gonna do IF Virginia DOES allow gay marriage? THAT will happen before flying cars, I betcha. What will you do? Open a bakery so you WON'T have to prepare a cake? Open a B&B, or a flower shop, so you can NOT serve your gay customers? What will you do?

Uh, pretty much have to ACCEPT it, methinks.

Gay marriage is an oxymoron.

I don't know how the poll was worded. Neither do you.

What I DO know is that the HRC usually hires outside independent polling companies to design and administer the polls. Which of these was used wasn't mentioned in the article.

I'm not surprised. It's the "Edge".(heavy sigh)
