George Will: Gays are “sore winners” for wanting marriage equality AND no discrimination

On FOX News Sunday, George Will joined Chris Wallace to talk about Arizona’s recent anti-gay bill and Gov. Brewer’s subsequent veto.

While pointing out that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 said that businesses had to serve everyone equally, Will added:

“…This too must be said: It’s a funny kind of sore winner in the gay rights movement that would say, ‘A photographer doesn’t want to photograph my wedding — I’ve got lots of other photographers I could go to, but I’m going to use the hammer of government to force them to do this.’… It’s not neighborly and it’s not nice. The gay rights movement is winning. They should be, as I say, not sore winners.”

To be honest, I’m not completely sure what he means by this. On a surface level, it would seem Will thinks “you’re winning the right to marriage equality, don’t push it any further. Stop asking for non-discrimination too.  It’s ‘not neighborly.'”
