America stands in this amazing position where one half of the nation is attempting to move forwards culturally and socially and the other is stuck in the early parts of the last century.
Public polling of GOP primary voters in Tennessee showed only 54% of them supported interracial marriage being legal.
Today on Hub pages I read a hub which opined that having sex with a woman using contraceptives was akin to rape or as the author put it: "The truth is that contraception is perhaps the purest form of woman abuse. With it we take our pleasures from our partner and call it 'making love'. What a big lie! By comparison, at least the rapist doesn’t deceive the victim. There is no real love when we practice artificial birth control. We take and we give nothing." he then added that since homosexual relationships could not produce children thy were basically rape too.
Mr Santorum the popular former GOP candidate was in favor of arresting people from their own homes and jailing them for the crime of sodomy. At a time when almost 40% of straight women have engaged in the act no less.
A popular subject of conversation is how divided our nation is, how can it not be when one side is pulling the country back toward intolerance, racism, sexism, sexual repression and homophobia and the other is trying to stay in 21st century?
I would love to say we can reconcile our differences, but there are just so many that I've given up and hunkered down in my little bastion of liberalism.
Equality and Equal rights is the only path forward. Anything less is a citizenry defeated.
Agree totally. And as long as people think they are better--morally and otherwise...it will never happen.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
That is America.
I'm totally cool hunkering down in my own bastion, too.
Live and let live.
Unfortunately, the fear-based reprobates will not stay in theirs.
I seriously wonder if it's not time for the blue states to secede from the nation and let the red states return to the 1950s.

If you are against Gay marriage, would you reconsider if it were called something else?Culturally for me marriage has been defined as being between a man and a woman. But if it had as strong a name (ie: Commitment) I think less people would oppose it. Legally I do not agree with any type of...
