The rapid, apparent total turn in momentum in that commonwealth must be a true nightmare for fundie bigots.
Oh well, the fundies still have Uganda!(For the most part.)

Actually there are few bigots in VA, Mostly naive misguided and mislead individuals. Once explained to as to what, they are fairly good persons

Given the fact that this complete turnaround we are discussing is very recent you sound like you're either in denial or don't consider widespread homophobia on the part of the majority to mark "fairly bad persons."

Would a rapid turn in opinion not be evidence that the people are listening carefully and reconsidering?
Personally, I'm not terribly convinced that reconsideration is happening all over Virginia. It's more like the Washington suburbs overwhelming Old Dominion.

In any event, if they're listening now...they were homophobic bigots before. And not so long ago, my point.
I agree with your second sentence. Which also suggests there are a lot of (native) bigots in VA.
Obviously these states on the radar now, like PA, VA, OK, UT, are a good decade behind MA, for example. The homophobes dragging everything out are most certainly bigots.
