I'll take support wherever we can find it. And if that support comes from someone who was once one of our detractors, all the better.
I have mixed feelings about this. This guy worked overtime to hurt us, and he had some degree of success. The obstruction of gay civil rights has been partly due to him and others like him. Now he does a Gilda Radner and says "Nevermind" so we should just forget about it?
At the same time, he might serve as an example to those holdout homophobes on the Right. He could weaken their resolve to oppose us. Or, alternatively, harden their resistance to gay civil rights. So that the verdict on this is still out, in my mind. I'll judge it by the actual results.
