Concession Speech and Election

I really loved the concession speech made by John McCain on Tuesday night, he showed a side of him I didn't really see during his campaign. I wish he had been successful in his bid for president, in 2000. I think he would have been a much better president than GWB.

I'm happy Obama won. I'm sad that Prop 8 passed in California, marriage should be a right afforded to everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation. I blame the various churches for wanting to impose their rules on people outside their faith, that's just not right.

Dont forget other cultures where the Male machismo'ism (ie: Mexico) looks down upon homosexuality in general.
Just an observation from my part of town.

There are always going to be other factors besides religion that make people dislike gay people, but I think the major organizations behind Prop 8 were the large christian churches.

I think the Catholic church is a large influence on many Latinos, but you are probably right, machismo is going to be a factor for a lot of men.
