But then Olson took the microphone, and began to describe his crusade to overturn California’s Proposition 8 and establish a constitutional right for same-sex marriage. The two gay families he represents are “the nicest people on the planet.” He believes to his core that discrimination because of sexual orientation “is wrong and it’s hurtful, and I never could understand it.” He knows some worry that the lawsuit is premature, “but civil rights are not won by people saying, ‘Wait until the right time.’”
So bets on how long till he is called a communist, pervert, child molester, etc?

He's been involved in the case for a long time, and thankfully I haven't heard too many criticisms of that type yet.

That could change depending on how the case turns out, but I think most people are understanding of the fact that someone might not share their opinion on one issue (or are just not paying attention).
