Even George Will sees the light on marriage equality

By Michael J.W. Stickings

ABC News:

While Supreme Court watchers ponder how justices will come down in the debate over gay marriage, ABC's George Will said Sunday on ABC News "This Week" it's clear where public opinion is headed.

"There is something like an emerging consensus," Will said, noting voters in three states recently endorsed same-sex marriage initiatives. "Quite literally, the opposition to gay marriage is dying. It's old people."

Well, old people or bigots. And often both.

And slowly, ever so slowly, conservatives -- some of them old, many of them bigots on this issue -- are backing down.

They always had justice against them. Now they have public opinion against them as well, and that's apparently enough, the realization that the politics just aren't with them anymore and that opposition is increasingly a losing issue for Republicans.

Sometimes political reality can get the better of you, eh?
