An important thing to remember about the anti-gay hate speech at the General Assembly Tuesday is that the fundamentalists standing in the way of gay rights may be loud, but they are increasingly the minority in North Carolina and around the county.

The same day as the protest, the Charlotte Presbytery ended its ban on gay men and lesbians serving as clergy or lay church leaders in Presbyterian churches.

And the polls show that a clear majority of North Carolinians supports recognition for gay couples, including more than two-thirds of voters under 30.

The anti-equality fundamentalists and the politicians who pander to them are on the wrong side of history—and they are yelling like they know it.
