Posted on 12/10/2012 5:39:44 PM PST by Olog-hai
Syndicated columnist George Will, appearing Sunday on ABCs This Week, said opposition to same-sex marriage is quite literally dying, because opponents tend to be older Americans.
There is something like an emerging consensus. Quite literally, the opposition to gay marriage is dying. Its old people, Will said.

with age comes wisdom. except when it comes to pundits.
What sort of bubble is he living in. Oh, forgot, the MSM bubble. Anyone have a pin?
George Will is wrong.
Hey. George, I’m in my 40’s, and I don’t consider myself old, you idiot. Yet I still have the common sense to be revolted and outraged at the idea of two sodomites messing with each other’s filthy anal area, or two women abusing themselves with objects, and calling it “marriage.”
Indoctrination of our youth by their Fascist, union-backed teachers is the problem. Schools are would-be Democrat voter factories, churning out liberal numbskulls while mommy and daddy are busy working (or looking for work).
It was a younger generation in Sodom and Gomorrah that decided homosexuality was the only way. And we know that ended badly
Why is government in the marriage business?
There’s only one right answer.
Everything else tells us government shouldn’t be in the business.
I guess that makes me old.
and what about the multitude of church going Christians?? A very high percentage of them are adamently opposed to same sex marriages.
In a few years when the fruits of Obama's labors are fully revealed and most people live in abject poverty, they won't have time for that kind of insane nonsense.
Homosexuality is perversion, plain and simple. Like evil, it’s been around for forever.
Why is government in the medical business?
Why is government in the education business?
Will is a realist. He sees no point staking out losing positions.
Cowboys - Steelers, huh? Will it be a question of who wants it less?
So only “old people” care that a child living with two “married” men won’t ever have a mother? Or that a child living with two “married” women won’t ever have a father? All with the endorsement of the state?
Sorry. Thinking children should be raised by both a mother and a father is not just the rumination of some demented, old-fashioned old person .
You are absolutely correct. George will is also correct, eventually, it will be accepted by society at large. Thats probably how it should go. Ultimately, it is a social contract, when society is ready, it will happen.
Why does government protect Habeaus Corpus and Trial by Jury? Maybe the government should get out of both too.
Government has an obligation per the English Common law to protect marriage as one man and one woman.
Nope, he's correct - the evidence from innumerable polls is overwhelming.
The core of the opposition to gay marriage (and marijuana legalization) is quite literally dying by the thousands every week.
And there's absolutely nothing that can be done to stop that.
And unlike some other Left-Right age trends (such as growing opposition to taxation with age, more concern about fighting crime, etc.) a 25 year old that supports gay marriage today is probably going to still support gay marriage 20 years from now.
Simply putting your fingers in your ears and screaming loudly isn't going to change reality.
so... common sense, logic, REALITY are all dying
