Dan Savage on DOMA and Prop 8: "My Catholic soul tells me we're going to lose"

"But that loss will set us up for a future victory because they are running out of excuses," Savage says

At a recent Q&A, Dan Savage talked marriage equality and the "straight people suck" conservative legal defense that played out in the Supreme Court hearings on the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8.

When asked about possible outcomes for the two high court cases, Savage predicted a short-term loss but long-term win for gay couples and families, explaining equal rights opponents are "running out of excuses."

And in rare Savage form, the clip is entirely SFW. No headphones necessary.
