Mapping Acceptance of Same-Sex Marriage

Mapping Acceptance of Same-Sex Marriage | AP GOVERNMENT | Scoop.it

This article by Nate Berg talks about the differing opinions of gay marriage throughout the United  States of America. Maps in this article show that not one area is completely one sided on the topic and that via tweeting, one can see that many states actually have positive sentiments on the issue. However, official state laws show that only a small minority of states in America allow gay marriage. I feel that this issue is progessing slowly and that in another four years there will be a larger amount of states that recognize and legalize gay marriage.

With the conclusion of the Republican National Convention on Thursday, August 30th, there are few states that changed their party affiliation. One of these exceptions includes New Mexico, which shifted from being very pro - Obama on August 22nd to slightly leaning towards Romney.

Also, the political giants that spoke at the convention did a very nice job of humanizing themselves. However, too many blatant attacks on the Barack Obama and the opposing Democratic Party made this humanization less effective

Muslim Rage & The Last Gasp of Islamic Hate

Muslim Rage & The Last Gasp of Islamic Hate | AP GOVERNMENT | Scoop.it

This article talks about author Salman Rushdie's experience as Muslim and the disagreements that he has with the face in the point of view of another former Muslim, Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It also talks about the American ambassador to Libya being murdered during a raging mob protesting a film mocking Muhammad. I think many things in this article are over the top. It's a sign that the some people of the Muslim faith tend to be overly pious. The Muslim men and women mentioned by Ali in the article seem to think that their religion is the ony legitimate religion and that all things within the Quran must be true and that nothing else is.
