Actually in a lot of states, gay marriage was voted against in a 70-80%. I guess in a liberal stronghold like CA, it was like 70-30% against it. So, I guess the gay marriage thing isn't so widely accepted as you think. Perhaps if they went on the bend of providing a cost-benefit of changing the definition of marriage, instead of just screeching about how they deserve it, they would probably go a lot further. Also, marriage is a social insitution, not a constitutional right. You folks make that fallacy that it is a right. If gay people want something like a marriage (of which it isn't by definition) they are more than welcome to come up with their own term of which they have refused.
Also, the intolerant left is quite fitting considering that you can't tolerate the popular vote on a social institution and must force people to follow your morality of which you accuse conservatives of doing. I've noticed that people from many backgrounds do not support it. That means for some liberals as well. But hey, stereotyping is bad unless it's done by the left.
As for immigrants, we have no problems with them. I think you confuse them with ILLEGAL immigrants. Again, with the stereotyping.
But hey, throwing Oreos at a black Republican is all right because he's one of the enemy, not of your plantation/belief system of Marxism. Never mind that that's a racial slur.
Again,ignoring this pesky little thing called fact. Pathetic. No wonder why Coulter gets your goat.
Let me ask you something that River brought up in another thread. If you think the left is so great, then how is it that it is all right to teach very young children sex education? How is endorsing Islam in schools above all other religions is all right, when an atheist in a court case eliminated "In God We Trust" in public instituions? Either you allow all to practice freely or you don't allow it at all. Seems to me not only are you folks intolerant, but you seem to suffer from situational ethics.
