There's a big difference between prohibiting a freedom via constitutional amendment, and enabling one through legislative action. The one represents the direct voice of the people, pro or con. The other? Well, let's just say it is time for our August Legislators, should the bill ever actually come up for discussion and vote, to put their money where their rhetoric is. It is somewhat amusing to see Democrat legislators nervously hoping that some Republican legislators support this thing, so THEY won't have to face the music back at home. It's not quite the slam-dunk that so many people apparently think it is going to be.
I am conservative, dont care who you marry, and did not vote for the amendment. That said, if i see attacks in an attempt to destroy someone personally or professionally because they disagree with gay marriage as i did in the last election i will raise my voice and wallet to oppose you. Keep it clean and i, and others i know, will stay out of the mix.
