Why gay marriage failed in CA

Look at these numbers, and tell me -- exactly how did the passage of Proposition 8 get blamed on black Obama voters?

Of course, as the PPIC poll demonstrated, we can thank evangelicals. I'm not saying it was black Obama voters. However, the poll didn't sample enough blacks. If black evangelicals supported Prop 8 more than other evangelicals, and if black turnout for Obama in California was relatively high, then in a sense we can say it was black Obama voters.

But there should be little doubt that the fundamentally, evangelical theologians and pastors are responsible. Even if black Obama voters tipped the scale, they did so because of what they learned in their religious community.
