"Younger people have grown up now in a world where they know gay people, where the silence has been shattered, where they know people as people. And they don't see marriage as some kind of thing that has to be sheltered away, because these people are people. ... The challenge is that momentum, that youthful understanding of who gay people are doesn't automatically translate into legal change. We have to do the work."

- Evan Wolffson of Freedom to Marry on Keith Olbermann
