Same sex marriage in inevitable. Those under 30 are way beyond even strongly supportative of marriage equality. Jackson is on the losing end and it is becoming really sad. I can imagine in 25 years, as all states except Mississippi and Alabama have same sex marriages, him writing it is only a passing fad. Yes, 16 years ago Dems overall didn't support marriage equality, but so what. In 16 years Americans support for same sex marriages has gone from about 25% to just a tad over 50%. At one time, neither major party supported the right of women to vote. Times change and more Americans support gay rights.
