During ABC’s This Week, conservative panelist George Will weighed in on what he called the “growing consensus” of public opinion regarding same-sex marriage. On Friday, the Supreme Court decided to take up two big cases. The court will hear one case challenging the Defense of Marriage Act, and a case on Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California.
Here’s the big takeaway, I believe: it’s all generational. According to Politico, “The generational gap on the gay marriage question persists. Younger people, who tend to view this as a civil rights issue, overwhelmingly supported gay marriage. A full 63 percent of 18-to-29-year-olds backed marriage, and only 14 percent wanted no legal unions for gay couples.”
“Quite literally,” powerhouse pundit George Will proclaimed on ABC’s This Week, “the opposition to gay marriage is dying.”
