  •  the over-65 white crowd will be gone in 20 years (0+ / 0-)

    And this issue will melt away.  It will look so silly that there was a time when gay marriage wasn't legal.  It will be sort of like the looks you get now when you mention to a 12 year old that there was a time when women couldn't vote.

    You are right - we treat the homophobic over-65 year olds with special dispensation.  But, I dunno, have you ever tried to convince your 80 year-old in-laws that the world is not ending because their daughter finally told them she was gay?  I have.  And let me tell you, nothing is ever going to change their minds about this issue.  So I guess we don't talk about them much... it's a lot easier to blame the right wing/church nuts, the mormons, the blacks than it is to call out your own elders.
