Did Barack Obama help torpedo gay marriage?

It seems likely that post election analysis will show a strong increase in black turnout in support of Senator (now President-elect) Barack Obama. One of the paradoxes of modern American politics is that while blacks are the most loyal constituencies that the Democratic party has, they are also the socially conservative. While white Democrats tend to favor gay marriage, blacks are adamantly opposed...essentially for biblical reasons.

Politics makes strange bedfellows.

A similar take here.
