WA 'protect marriage' guy says his side can't lose, isn't wrong; he is wrong, will lose

by Jeremy Hooper
"We can’t lose this in the long run, because the arguments on the other side are wrong in the absolute sense. We’re dealing with laws that are
Jbackholm No Background1317082757-1 bigger than us. The laws of the universe are not subject to legislative preference. And a hundred years from now, we won’t be having a discussion about whether kids need moms and dads and whether there’s a material difference between relationships involving people of the same gender or different genders. So I am not at all concerned that we are on the wrong side of history."

— Joseph Backholm from Family Policy Institute of Washington/Preserve Marriage Washington speaking to PubliCola.com
