“Sore Winners”: Are Pro-Gay Marriage Activists Turning In To “Bullies”?George Will, on Fox News:
No one likes sore losers, but now we have sore winners. The gay rights movement is winning ...Rod Dreher headline:
Against Liberal Sore WinnersThere may come a time when liberals can be genuine sore winners. But it's weird for conservatives to adopt that talking point when they continue to fight marriage equality around the country, and when a majority of Americans still don't enjoy equal rights.
Put another way, if they think we've already won, why are they still fighting?
Here's my proposal to conservatives: Stop fighting and allow full marriage freedom in all 50 states, and I will stop rubbing our victories in your face. But if you fight, you get to suffer the indignities of our victory laps. And boy, those have been fun, haven't they?
But we haven't achieved our ultimate victory yet, and the dead-ender bigots are still fighting the inevitable, and too many people are being denied their basic rights. So no, we can't logically be sore winners.
Not yet, anyway.
