The dominoes are falling, fast. Bob Ross reported that talk show host Bill O'Reilly now supports gay marriage ("Strong families," Forum, April 1).
Last week, blowhard Rush Limbaugh admitted and lamented: "The issue is lost. I don't care what the Supreme Court does, this is now inevitable. … We lost the issue when we started allowing the word 'marriage' to be bastardized and redefined. … Once we started talking about 'gay marriage,' 'traditional marriage,' 'opposite-sex marriage,' 'same-sex marriage,' 'hetero-marriage,' we lost."
Limbaugh's right about the inevitability of gay marriage, except the war isn't lost; it's won. And the cause wasn't language, it was empathy and understanding.
