I saw this this morning, and thought it was interesting.
Ted Olson's role as gay marriage advocate has raised eyebrows on both the right and the left.................
Olson says that for him, the case was a natural, and as he talked about it, his eyes repeatedly filled with tears.
"We're talking about an effect upon millions of people and the way they live their everyday life and the way they're treated in their neighborhood, in their schools, in their jobs," Olson said. "If you are a conservative, how could you be against a relationship in which people who love one another want to publicly state their vows ... and engage in a household in which they are committed to one another and become part of the community and accepted like other people?"...........
.................Olson likens the discrimination faced by gays and lesbians to that experienced by racial minorities. As a college debater traveling in the South, he witnessed such treatment firsthand when restaurants refused to serve his team because one member was African-American. Decades later, Olson calls it a "searing memory."

I applaud him! Everyone, of legal consenting age should be able to marry, if they want.
