    The culture of California is far more liberal than the culture of North Carolina.  On gay rights issues, California is about 20% ahead of North Carolina (which is probably about 10% ahead of the rest of the southern states except for Virginia and maybe Florida).  There are liberals and there are gays and lesbians in North Carolina but certainly not as many as in California.  There are some cities and some coastal enclaves but it's nothing compared to the coastal enclaves in California and urbanization.  There are some Christian fundamentalists in California and some rural folks but there are a LOT more in North Carolina.  

    Yet.....what the Christian right could do in California in 2000 (which wasn't all that long ago), they could not acheive in North Carolina.  That's pretty remarkable.
