Kentucky's chief lawyer Jack Conway went against his governor and arguably the will of his constituents when he tearfully announced on Tuesday he wouldn't defend a Kentucky law banning recognition of out-of-state gay marriages.
Would we be applauding "pro-life" governors, lawyers and attorneys general if they were refusing to enforce Roe vs Wade's lifting of states abortion bans because of their personal beliefs?

Every time I see the phrase 'the world only spins forward' I always think of GAF's condescending reply to iYup.

Group of US Republicans come out in support of same-sex marriage | World news | theguardian.com

20 to 30 years from now, I can guarantee the then current GOP will taking credit for gay rights

Some would be.

But they would have SCOTUS rulings against them.

In 20 years, everyone will be saying how they would have been for SSM had they been around back then, in the way that you try to rewrite history so the GOP seems less blatantly racist.

The Marriage Equality End Game « The Dish

Quote:
But when people resolve the struggle between theory and the human person – and it’s only resolved by embracing the whole person, including her sexual orientation – the denial of equality can seem increasingly outrageous. No straight person would ever acquiesce to the idea that he or she does not have a right to marry. Such a denial seems redolent only of slavery’s evil treatment of African-Americans. And who can really demand that another human being never experience love, commitment and intimacy? And so, over time, the country is sorting itself into two camps: most everyone in one camp, and older, white evangelicals – who have often never met a gay person – in the other. Which means a huge headache for the GOP.
Time is fast running out for the old guard. They can hold on as tightly as they want to their worldview, but those only a generation behind them don't share it. Anyone under the age of 30, regardless of their political beliefs, is far more likely to be for gay marriage than against it.

Perhaps an increase in senility though?

Isn't SSM also unpopular with blacks and Muslims? But only a racist or Islamaphobe would mention that and this author is a good liberal preaching to the choir.

I believe it is. But old and religious is the common thread.

Wisdom may come with age, but also stubbornness and refusal to live in the present rather than the nostalgia filled past.

Younger people are far more open to change. And willing to accept things may not be the way they always thought they were.

gay dads are hot.

responsible, loving fatherhood is attractive on all men, straight and gay.
