Sen. Tim Kaine: Virginia vote on same-sex marriage could be different today
Click here for story ^

Posted on 06/27/2013 9:00:04 AM PDT by Gopher Broke

In 2006, Virginians voted 57 percent to 43 percent for a constitutional ban on gay marriage in the state, but Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says that just 6½ years later, the outcome could be different.

“If we had that election today, I’m not sure it would come out the same way,” Mr. Kaine said Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Virginia will still vote for traditional marriage.

Sounds like Tim Kaine might even break out a bowl of fruit-loops over this!

He is kind of, a you know .. is the rumor that I heard while living in Virginia.

He has really has been pushing this agenda for a very long time.

The boy now is quite excited. And, too he enjoys pushing the
attack on Christianity to please his agenda. Him and Mark Warner are on the same page/frauds. I think Warner is a hidden gay. Yes, I know he’s married.

I think he’s right. People are so fickle, so easily swayed by propaganda and the Left has done a masterful job misrepresenting what homosexuality is. I think the liberals are even amazed at how the bulk of Americans have changed their perception of gays over the past 10-15 years.

Not sure, but if my FB feed is any indicator, he might be right.

Can’t say he is wrong. Look at what they’ve accomplished in the scant year since we all packed the Chick-Fil-A’s.

I live in VA and the vast majority of those in my feed are in VA. I have noticed the blacks are silent on the issue though (I went to high school with about a 50/50 racial split so I know a lot of them), so, like every other election in Virginia, it would likely depend on how they vote and if they turn out.

Virginia is an oddball with it’s amendment, it was so strict that many were turned off, the AG had to clarify after passage that any adults could still contract with each other afterwards. I think that really suppressed the % that it passed by. Now it passed by 57% in 2006 and is the strictest amendment in the nation, but it probably would have passed by 65%+ otherwise—all the southern states around VA (except NC) passed theirs by 75% or more in the middle of the last decade.

If a normal vote would have been in the mid 60% ranges in 2006, the support for gay marriage could have gained 8-10% by now. CA’s prop. 22 passed by 61% in 2000, prop. 8 passed by 52% in 2008. I bet that if only 57% of people really thought gay marriage’ was impossible in 2006, the % now would be around 51% or lower in Va.

Okay, thanks for letting me know.

From the first comment on this article, it looks like some do not care about this issue in a way to only attack social conservatives. Some don’t care about same sex behaviors while others see the impact on our children.

Absolutely disagree with this moron liberal. This is the conservative issue that changed the NC House and Senate and the governorship, driven by all traditional Christian churches, black, white, hispanic. The black churches esp., and their matriarchy with their bishops, recognized homosexuality as being a major force in driving their families apart and destroying their communities, along with the drug trade, and recognize the white liberal statists as being the driving force in the democrat party supporting the homo agenda. Game,set, match.

Virginians have a Senator put in place by outside the state forces and money (17th Amendment needs repeal/replace). Imagine just how whacky it would be to have McCaulliffe the crook as gov with this kind of “rationalization” by Kaine.
Technocrats from DC running the Old Dominion State— I think not!!

Our idiot San Antonio mayor, Julian Castro, basically said the same thing about Texas today. Then he said it’s bad for Texas because all the high-tech companies are homosexual-friendly and won’t want to come here if we don’t recognize same-sex attraction disorder as normal.

I.
Just.
Wanna.
Spit.

People feel isolated and alone in their views against the homosexual agenda.

Can they find strength and a team in the republican party? No.

The GOP presidential candidate was a Mormon Bishop whose father was born in Mexico because his family fled to preserve polygamy, and who himself, as governor, gave us gay marriage, while being one of the earliest (20 years ago) politicians supporting gay Scout leaders, and campaigning on fully homosexualizing the military.

People feel isolated, and they give in or stay silent and withdraw.

Not just Warner. There’s a decent-sized Gay Mafia in the Virginia GOP apparatchiks. Former Senator George Allen, most of his top aides were gay. . .
