Like other Republican governors before him [Gov. Christie (NJ), Gov. Martinez (NM), and Gov. Corbett (PA) come to mind), North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) accepts that marriage equality is now the law of the land in the Tar Heel State:

I think it's a time for healing on all sides. Now that the disagreement has been resolved in the courts, it's our job to live together and work together and play together and respect each other together. And I'll, hopefully, be a part of that constructive dialog.

And this, my friends, is what the anti-equality activists fear more than anything. Our wins are one thing, but their own teammates' acceptance of our wins is what will crush their whole movement—and they know this.

A good move, governor. Alhtough let's also be clear about one thing: The gay citizens who had their rights stripped away through legislation need a lot more healing than those of you who orchestrated that pain.
