Gay marriage, Rebel flag, free speech

Here’s a cheery thought:

“A few years back, the late Cardinal George of the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, who died in April, said this: ‘I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the Church has done so often in human history.'”

—Austinite John Davidson of the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

On the other hand, I expect a quiet but growing refusal to obey these judicial laws-by-edict won by the Left’s “Outrage Industry,” as we continue to see with the drug laws, which may result in the cardinal’s “ruined society” but just as likely could create something altogether more promising.

Via The Federalist.

UPDATE:  The refusal begins.
