“The moderate tough guys we need to flip…”

I’ve heard all I need to. Is there really a lack of understanding about why they won’t put gays in the commercials???
First Guess: Right or wrong, the FASTEST way to get a vote restricting Gay marriage is to show the viewers gay couples with young kids. I’m ACTUALLY SURPRISED the “one man–one woman” proponents haven’t done this.

I agree Schurkey.
Most people, especially in Minnesota can’t identify with the gay community because most are heterosexual. If you want people to side with you and if you want them to get them to vote or your side you have to identify with those you hope to reach.
No matter though, I still am hoping Minnesota does the right thing and vote no on this amendment. We are the USA, the land of the FREE not the land of the Christian, and as such should not be subject to religious laws as a part of public policy. There is a reason the separation of church and state exists. Freedom and happiness for all Americans regardless of status, color, gender, age, AND sexual orientation. I am an ally and if I were still in Minnesota id be voting no.
Peace and happiness to all!

Wow, Gene. Let’s figure out the percentage of gay people who have participated in a gay pride parade, and then let’s figure out how many people in the gay pride parade were doing something you think is negative. The resulting figure would put a very small percentage of gay people in the category of “being their own worst enemy”. What about the other 99.9999%

You missed my point. It’s not the number, but the impression made. Just like one discourteous American in Europe can reinforce stereotypes.
