Are we not Americans, Andrea Lafferty?
Even conservative polling shows a fairly even split. More fair-minded polling routinely puts marriage equality in the majority. But don't let that get in the way of Andrea Lafferty's (Traditional Values Coalition) narrative
This just drives home how little regard people like Andrea Lafferty have for us and our views. Just looking at California, Andrea's home state and talking point: 6.4 million voting Californians voted against Prop 8, even four years ago when support was lower than it is now. Are they not citizens? Are they not taxpayers? Do they not matter?
I may not consider those who vote against my rights to be setting the best example of what an American can and should be in terms of equal protection under the law. I do, however, still consider even my most ardent opponents to be my fellow Americans. I seriously wonder sometimes if my most vocal political foes afford me even that most basic level of respect.
