    I was just looking through the responses of an article that I posted on digg about Argentina approving marriage equality and found this quote:

    "A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it." - Max Planck



    So what do you think? Do you think this is a must before we get full marriage equality on a Federal Level?

    Yes and no, certainly some anti-marriage folks will take the belief with them to their grave, but the rate at which acceptance is happening has been more rapid than just from that.

    Is what a must? Old bigots dying off?

    Not necessarily. I think a lot of people's minds are changing because almost everyone knows a gay person these days.

    But it sure couldn't hurt our cause.
