I don't know any conservatives who hate gays. You're full of it.


Maybe hate is a bit strong
But
Why are so many against gay marraige?

Because many believe that it is against the plan their God has set forth. That it is a sin. Just like they will be against other sins like murder and adultery. You may not believe that it is a sin (homosexuality), but you must be aware that Christianity and Islam do.

Annnnnnyway, let's discuss this as a horse race and try to keep the politarding to other threads.

I think it's safe to say that, in general, Dems would be more comfortable with a gay prez and a first man than Reps.

The most anti gay reps would never vote Dem anyway. So I don't think he'd be hurt much in the middle.

But it's not quite that simple. E g. Blacks are obviously hard core dems. However, they are more anti gay than the general population.

This could create a problem for the mayor.

I think that Bernie being a Jew, or at least non-christan really hurt him there too.

I don't think he'll get the nom. Maybe in a few years. We know that young people are overwhelmingly gay friendly across demographics so the longer he waits the less of an issue it will be

That's right. We don't hate them. They're going to Hell anyway so they got enough to worry about without us conservatives hating on them. But I don't mind them at all, I just try to stay several yards away from them in case of any sudden lightning bolts.

No, you said it right the first time, this is how you liberals think. Us republicans hate everything. The elderly, the minorities, women, the handicapped, puppies, we hate it all. You got it all figured out.
