Wait, are we hiding our equal marriage goals? If so, please allow me to clarify

by Jeremy Hooper

Notorious anti-gay activist Scott Lively is sending out the warning sign:

2015? Please! We right-side-of-history advocates, "elite" or not, are conspiring to make equal marriage happen by this afternoon, if we can get it! And frankly, we don't care who knows it. While it might not make sense to an extreme social conservative who has called for the criminalization of "the public advocacy of homosexuality," we equality activists are actually quite proud to lead our nation to its richer, better, brighter more equal future.

So yes, Mr. Lively: we are working, day and night, to achieve the inevitable as quickly and as easily as we can. If you want to spend your days convincing America that discrimination is instead the way of the future, then by all means, continue on that fruitless attempt to secure a Pyrrhic victory. But don't pretend your pro-fairness opponents have some sort of cat in some sort of bag. That baby's meowing—and loudly! Lively, even.
