Quote: The Next Generation Of Conservatives Are Gonna Be Fine With Same-Sex Marriage

“The next generation of conservatives are gonna be fine with same-sex marriage.” – Chris Mooney (The Republican Brain)

“This is the nature of left and right when you think about it. The next generation of conservatives are gonna be fine with same-sex marriage. Conservatism is best defined as resistance to change. Once there’s a new status quo then you defend that one, and so you see that with civil rights, you see it with women’s rights, you saw it with interracial marriage. You always gotta drag some people a little bit.” – Chris Mooney – Author of “The Republican Brain

I believe this was from Up with Chris Hayes in late 2011, but I’m not 100% sure. I know the quote is accurate, as I transcribed it myself.
