I still don’t get how the majority can decide the fate of the minority. This graph is both disappointing and reaffirming. On one hand, look at how far we’ve come in 15 years. On the other, it shouldn’t even be a discussion. I feel, at the very least, EVERY bar should be the same as the orange bar. If you know someone who is gay, how can you look at them as if they deserve less rights than you? The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. And some day VERY soon, the bigots who said no to gay rights will be looked at the same way we today look at slave owners and opponents of women’s suffrage.
