An article in Politico today arrived at the positive surmation that marriage equality is still inevitable. Ever the Grinch, National Organization for Marriage's Maggie Gallagher has taken to the interwebs to opine on why she thinks the opposite holds true. My favorite stops on Maggie's bullet points includes No. 3 and 4:
2. Young people are not as unanimous as most people think.
In California, the young-adults vote split 55 percent to 45 percent. Is it so hard to imagine 5 percent of those young people changing their minds as they move through the life cycle?
3. The argument from despair is bait and switch.
They are trying push the idea that gay marriage is inevitable, because they are losing the argument that gay marriage is a good idea.
while No. 5 might be a little more sense than I've ever heard Maggie make, unfortunately:
5. Demography could be destiny.
If there is one force that directly contradicts the inevitability argument, it is that traditionalists have more children.
