    You're equating his age with his position, which makes no sense. He held the same views when he was young, and there are plenty of younger people who don't support marriage equality. Imagine if a black politician came out against marriage equality, and someone used the word "black" as an insult with regard to that position because they can point to polls showing that more blacks are opposed to marriage equality than the general population. This is the definition of an -ism, using someone's demographic trait to smear them, although there isn't a one-to-one correspondence between the trait and their behavior/thinking. It needs to stop.
