A War We Have Already Won

From time to time the question is raised as to whether there is a "Gay Agenda". Whether or not it would be considered a Gay agenda, or merely a declaration of a goal achieved, the following quote is interesting.

“A solid majority of young people under the age of 24 believe that same gender partners should have the right to marry. So the Supreme Court is just one more battle in a war we have already won, be it for the next generation.” (emphasis added) (Robin Byler, Lesbian News, March 2008, Vol. 33 Issue 8, p. 9)

With the outcome of same-sex marriage in California still to be determined this November by Proposition 8, it would seem clear that the claim of victory is not in reference to legal victory, but rather to having won over the opinions of the coming generation.
