"It is justice, not a storm, that is gathering"

A heartening Op Ed in the New York about the "gathering Storm" video, which explains how same-sex marriage is not really an issue any more in the US and how, in the word of Jon Huntsman Jr., the governor of Utah and a Mormon, who in February endorsed civil unions for gay couples, opinion has “shifted quite substantially”.

Fox barely mentioned the subject; its rising-star demagogue, Glenn Beck, while still dismissing same-sex marriage, went so far as to “celebrate what happened in Vermont” because “instead of the courts making a decision, the people did.” Dr. Laura Schlessinger, the self-help media star once notorious for portraying homosexuality as “a biological error” and a gateway to pedophilia, told CNN’s Larry King that she now views committed gay relationships as “a beautiful thing and a healthy thing.” In The New York Post, the invariably witty and invariably conservative writer Kyle Smith demolished a Maggie Gallagher screed published in National Review and wondered whether her errant arguments against gay equality were “something else in disguise.”
