At the risk of "hijacking" this thread back to the original topic, the whole question of whether a state has or has not enacted a prohibition on gay marriage boils down to a single variable that Silver completely ignores: were the voters of State X given an opportunity to vote on a gay marriage ban? If they were, it passed handily. If they weren't, that says a lot more about the state of democracy in State X than it does about anyone's religion, political ideology, marital woes, gayness, or any of the other irrelevant factors Silver drones on about.
