The Mormon moment was a fizzle, not just because Mitt Romney lost, but because he couldn't actually talk to Americans about his Mormon identity and beliefs. As Republican candidates go, I've seen worse than Romney. I cringed every time he offered a policy solution that seemed to come right out of the Church ward, but I can't quite see Romney as the evildoer of the liberal imagination. That said, as a married lesbian mom, I was really a one issue voter.
Instead, it is our moment, the gay moment. Three gay marriage victories at the ballot box! One successful fight against restricting the definition of marriage to a man and a woman! Multiple victories for openly gay candidates!
I can't wait until this moment is history, until I have to explain to LB a time that she can't quite understand. A time when we were unequal.
