And Texas makes 19 hateful states

Yesterday Texans overwhelmingly voted for an amendment to their state constitution, making gay marriage (and any equivalent) illegal. I wonder how long it will take for people to realize how hateful this is. Personally, I feel like the gay community is going to just snap soon (or is it just me?). It is seriously ridiculous to deny any American equal rights. Regardless of what you may think God feels about gays, this country is supposed to have separation of church and state. Yet, these yahoos are using their religious beliefs to flat-out discriminate against a large percentage of citizens. This issue should not even be put to vote. If Americans of the 1960's had been allowed to vote against inter-racial marriage, they would have illegalized that too. Has America lost its ability to think?? Speaking for myself, I've had enough. Gays, lesbians, and their allies need to unite and refuse to sit at the back of the bus.
