Amazing, gays could get married in Iowa, but not in NYC. Aren't we supposed to be one of the most liberal cities in the country?

Well, I guess it was good while it lasted, and despite the stay, it's a step forward. I'm especially pleased that it was a swing/borderline red state like Iowa, as everyone already knew MA was pretty damn liberal.

in my lifetime, we'll have either marriage equality or civil unions available in all 50 states.

those opposed are going to look as silly as the segregationists of the 1950s.

get on the bus, or be left behind.

Exactly.

This is a losing issue for them and they stand to lose an entire generation of voters who are going to be raised with gay friends in loving relationships, gay friends with children - biological or adopted and so on.

The conservative party in Canada has abandoned the issue of gay marriage, stating that it has been settled (by the pesky courts and public opinion, imagine that) precisely because they can recognize a pragmatic viewpoint when they see one.
