Gay Marriage: A Good Argument For Death Panels?

New Jersey’s State Senate votes on gay marriage tomorrow, and, despite the support of Garden State God Bruce Springsteen, the bill seems unlikeley to pass. If that’s the case, it will be a dispiriting end to what has been a terrible year for supporters of marriage equality. Ben Smith reports that opponents are suggesting that the string of defeats undermines the idea that gay marriage is inevitable, but it does not: It just pushes everything back a decade or two. Sorry, gays! Come back and see us when all the old people die. At that point you’ll be the only ones getting married anyway.
