QUEER QUOTE: NOM Founder Thinks Nationwide Marriage Equality In 2 Years

Well, well! The heterosexual supremacists are in full despair as the writing on the wall becomes clearer and clearer that eventually marriage equality will be a nationwide reality in the United States. Maggie Gallagher is the co-founder of the National Organization of Marriage, the pre-eminent nationwide organization devoted to preserving the discriminatory status quo which has been repeatedly accused of being a front group for conservative religions like Mormonism and Catholicism.

Ever since the Supreme Court issued two amazing pro-LGBT decisions in summer 2013 with U.S. v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry Gallagher has been giving increasingly pessimistic about her sides chances. Recently she said the following which is today's Queer Quote:
"I believe the Supreme Court is going to impose gay marriage in all fifty states within the next two years. I think the battle's going to shift to religious liberty and we're gonna need politicians with backbone. What happened first in the gay marriage issue is liberals used their dominance in the mainstream media to persuade GOP pundits that they should be silent on the issue and retreat."
So, basically Gallagher and her fellow heterosexual supremacists realize that their standard non-sensical arguments against marriage equality have failed to persuade decision makers. They are instead trying to change the terrain of the battle over full LGBT equality to the area of religious freedom and "conscience."

As Jeremy Hooper at Good As You notes, by her own words Gallagher has undermined the rationale for why people should donate to support the organization she co-founded and led for so long. The National Organization for Marriage was created to fight marriage equality so that the co-founded just admitted defeat should be a fatal blow to the organization.
