    Then why do Kentuckians have elected officials who believe otherwise, and block legislation that would make such discrimination illegal? This is illogical.

    Too bad the remaining 17% are those in power.

    Gays are not disproportionately suffering in Kentucky vs any other state from discrimination. The fact though that most people have this mindset means that having laws directly prohibiting owners from discriminating would be somewhat pointless. Gays, as everyone else, can always find some place to go if they aren't welcome.

    How many people where polled for this question? What counties and regions of Kentucky were polled? You just cannot assume that the mass majority of people in Kentucky oppose discrimination against gay men. Otherwise, why did they elect so many religious conservatives to office.
