7. There has been no 180 degree shift on gay marriage. Greenwald is full of it.
A majority of states amended their constitutuions--after 1998, I might add (except Hawaii, which did it in 1998) to outlaw gay marriage. In what universe cam Greenwald (or anyone) think that's a whole new, wonderful universe for gay people?

As far as flexibility, gays have endured thousands of years of discrimination before laws even started to change a little. And slaves around the world endured thousands of years of slavery before nations started outlawing it.

And those are only laws. Hearts and minds change even slower. People sell their own kids as sex slaves and there are all kinds of slave rings, including in the U.S., for slavery, sex slaves, domestic "workers," etc.
