“No, Andrew, I do not see myself as a victim. That would be absurd. Nonetheless, the wall of hatred now directed at anyone who opposes gay marriage or traditional understandings of sex and gender is worth mentioning. Because it tells us what gay marriage is about. Not pluralism, not live-and-let-live, but establishing a new public morality which will not be optional. And because real people are being affected by this wall of hatred. And because hatred of one another is wrong, coming from any part of the political spectrum.” – Maggie Gallagher, who is the real victim of her campaign to deny civil equality to her fellow Americans.
