Actually it sounds like the anti-gays are preparing for defeat.

Maggie and Brian undoubtedly feel that their future peddling anti-gay hysteria is secure, just as the pro-lifers have had a secure place In society for the last forty years. But this is the wrong model. The correct model is interracial marriage, which has been accepted by almost everyone now. Just as there are still a few hold-outs on the issue and quite a few more who aren't all that comfortable in mixed company--especially when romantic interests are involved--there will always be a few carrying on about same-sex marriage.

Maggie had better hope she can recast her mission of saving marriage as something that resonates beyond the next election cycle. If she's smart, she'll embrace marriage equality and champion stability for all couples.

Blind spot indeed ! If the boy kept asking for his father it only proves she's not as ideal a parent as she probably thinks she is .. These people simply can't accept the fact they might be wrong ; and that so much of their lives has been wasted on the wrong issues ..

Maggie "Engine Block" Gallagher's husband dumped her is my understanding. I don't see why his blessed release from her should be taken out by her on the glbt community.

If she would focus her efforts on trying to KEEP people married and educate ALL couples to make better choices about marriage and childbearing, she MIGHT actually do some good.

But as long as she continues with her hate-based blind-spot and anti-gay animus, she's just working to hurt innocent people. That never works long-term.

Actually I think her recent statements lays the groundwork for doing just that. I interpreted her comments as an admission they're going to lose the marriage equality battle.

She a crafty moneymaker- I wouldn't be suprised to see her starting up a gay marriage counseling service!

Yeah, I kinda doubt that... But whatever she chooses to do after this will be an solid indicator of whether or not she really was in the hate-based movement for the money.

I suspect she was because her argument of "it's all about the children" doesn't hold water when you take into account that hundreds of thousands of children of same-sex couples are being harmed by their parents not being allowed to marry.

And no matter how much I despite the disgusting fat cow, she's not stupid. She's got an agenda of her own that she's following and I'd bet my house it's money.

I think she was in the hate-business over her guilt about being a bad mother. You heard her remarks about her kid needing his daddy driving her into her activism. So instead of helping families stay together, she blames gays for all her problems and goes on a rampage.

I'll bet her kid's f-d up. I've never seen him on stage with her.
