Anti-Gay Marriage Activist Realizes He’s Actually Pro-Gay Marriage

Outspoken anti-LGBTQ organizer Louis J. Marinelli, known for coordinating the National Organization for Marriage’s “One Man, One Woman” bus tour and claiming that “gays have shorter lifespans,” has posted a surprising message on his blog:

I have come to this point after several months of an internal conflict with myself. That conflict gradually tore away at me until recently when I was able to for the first time simply admit to myself that I do in fact support civil marriage equality.

In fact, Marinelli has now joined with the Courage Campaign to support the fight for marriage equality. Here’s a quote from the statement, which was released earlier today:

We need to have conversations with people of faith, people with deep-rooted hostility towards equality because of their upbringing. I’m being honest, Friend, when I say I’ve been there and we have a lot of work to do.

If this guy can change, there’s hope yet.
