2. I did hear him say that this morning

I found it a refreshing admission of the evidence of the truth from a reich winger. Maybe the rest of them will get the message.

3. Don't lump all of us together!

Speaking as an elderly person, and for my elderly friends: none of us are against gay marraige! I resent an old freak like George Will lumping us all together into one ugly mess of homophobes and bigots. "It's old people" is an ugly generalization that is simply not true. George Will really needs to look a little closer at his good Republican friends if he wants to see some real bigots.

7. I and 41% of my boomer contemporaries love it

The other 59% unfortunately do not.

5. Yes. Thank you.

My first, and second, and third reaction to Will's statement was f**k you, stop stereotyping.
I know more young people who don't think gays should get married than people my ancient age.
It is religion and environment that engenders the hate, not age.

8. I have to agree, being 68

I have been fighting for Gay rights since 1968. The complaint is with religions
