The guy who argued against same-sex marriage in front of the Supreme Court now planning a gay wedding for his daughter
The lawyer who argued before the Supreme Court in favor of upholding California’s ban on gay marriage learned while he was handling the case that one of his children is gay and now is helping her plan her wedding with another woman.
Attorney Charles Cooper says his view of same-sex marriage is evolving after having argued in court that gay unions could undermine marriages between a man and a woman.
It’s the conservative way: fight tooth and nail against something — until it affects someone in your family, and then change your mind.
The difference between liberals and conservatives is that liberals have empathy, and conservatives are incapable of it.
Liberals can understand how things affect other people, even if it doesn’t affect them personally. Conservatives will argue against things that help other people — until it can help them or someone close to them.
