Andrew Sullivan on "Bullies in the Gay Rights Movement"


It is strange to see so many folks describe marriage as a "deeply unpopular" cause. As I told a Politico reporter yesterday, given our ability to win on this issue over and over in blue states, it is impossible to believe this is an "unpopular" cause among the American people, or that it hurts Republicans.

But kudos to Andrew (for whom it is obviously a deeply unpopular cause) for saying this:

"When civil rights groups bully, they lose the moral high-ground. When you have men like David Brock leading the charge - and there are no means he has ever eschewed to achieve his ends - the danger is that we prove the far right's point. We must be better than them."
