I am surprised about the resilience of the anti-gay groups in the U.S. In Canada when marriage was passed the anti-gay groups mostly disappeared. Even the conservative newspapers now act as they were for gay people all along.

When our Conservative party was elected they did have a parliamentary vote on whether to re-open the issue but did not try to win it. It was just a sop.

It must be a sign of how thoroughly the religious right has taken over the Republican Party.
