Take heart — Amendment One won’t stand

Amendment One's passage in North Carolina and its similar enforcement in the vast majority of the United States will be on the books now. Although disappointed, I do not despair because this issue has been decided by the “X,” “Y” and “Millennial” generations. As they assume positions of power, the states will rescind these laws like cascading dominos.

The Bible had been used to oppose civil rights and a women's rights, but with the passing of time, enlightened thinking prevailed. The Constitution was right regarding these contentious issues and the Bible was wrong. Some may say the Bible was right in this case, but it was thought to be right in opposing Galileo and Copernicus. Take heart — time will tell. It took two generations since the Civil Rights era began to elect Obama. A gay or lesbian president is not that far off. Here's to the younger generations.
