Grieving for the future, writes Henry Dax in letters to the editor,
November 11, 2004
“The religious right voted against gay marriage as if it was something so immoral. . . ”
According to an analysis of voter preferences in the 11 states with protection of marriage initiatives, Democrats voted 64 to 57 percent for the marriage protection initiatives. Black Democrats voted 61 percent. It is a liberal myth that this was a Republican religious right homophobic plot. It was voters, Democrat and Republican, voting their values.

When Democratic leaders trash the voters of these winning defense of marriage initiative, they are trashing their own voter base. How short sided.
