It will be a cold day in hell before a few of those legalize it, unfortunately. Too much of a religious stronghold. It may even become legal on a federal level before they make any state actions. I grew up in the south, and they're always dead last to change anything like that. 

 

Eg: Mississippi didn't legally abolish slavery until '95. And that was mainly because someone noticed it, and made a stink. I will tell you from first hand experience, in the south there are many many people who still wish that hadn't happened.

 

And the same goes with gay marriage. It may become legal, but there will forever be people out there who see themselves as a higher class than others.  :angry:

Legislators in Minnesota (whose voters voted it down in November) and Illinois are voting on the issue this week.

 

I know Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina etc won't support marriage equality but if North Carolinans can vote for an African-American for President, they might vote for marriage equality.
