Prop. 8 Plaintiff Lawyer Ted Olson Says GOP Will Be Pro-Gay
Ted Olson, the former solicitor general to George W. Bush and one of two lead attorneys to successfully take down Proposition 8 at the Supreme Court, is turning his efforts towards making the Republican party pro-gay.
He spoke to reporters at the Washington, D.C. premiere of HBO's The Case Against 8.
From U.S. News & World Report:
Olson also isn’t willing to play political prognosticator, though he said we’d eventually see a GOP presidential candidate who is pro-gay marriage.
“Everybody in this country is moving in the right direction … but conservatives, more and more conservatives, more and more Republicans, and more people who are a little older, are starting to see the rightness of the issue,” Olson said. “And when they see this HBO documentary, which is beautifully, beautifully done, you cannot walk away from this film and not be convinced that this is the right side to be on.”
We actually tend to agree with Olson. The Republican party can't continue to sustain itself being officially anti-gay for long. How long until we see Republican presidential candidates and the party in general supporting the gay community?
