Just so anti-equality advocates don't think I'm hypocritical (part 2)...

by Jeremy Hooper

…I absolutely recognize that in every state where equality (/a pro-equality President) won, a huge number of people went the other way. In some cases, it was an almost even number.

I say this, because it drove me crazy in the days after Prop 8 to hear groups like NOM completely overlooking the millions of Californians who rejected their cruel repeal. Now, of course I believe that pro-equality and anti-equality are not two sides of a coin, and I know that those who are so undeniably hurt by discrimination are in no way comparable to those who are "hurt" by not being allowed to discriminate. But even so, I do think it's important to remember that in just about any city in any state, a good number of our neighbors went the other way.
