An interesting article on the political ramifications of the Massachusetts decision:

"Once it becomes apparent (and it will) that a judicial decision in a single and notably liberal state threatens to sweep all of those laws aside and impose gay marriage on an unwilling nation, all hell is going to break loose."

Or all hell isn't going to break lose. For what it's worth (not much, I realize), I think Kurtz is underestimating people's political apathy. Plus, I think liberals are on the winning side of the rhetoric war here. It seems hard to oppose gay marriage without sounding like a bigot. Or at least without being labeled a bigot. Or perhaps I've underestimated how much people care about the marriage issue, especially in the south... Thoughts from the universe of readers (Tom) or co-bloggers (Brian)?
