told The Huffington Post that the Republican Party should accept that the public opinion has shifted to acceptance of gay marriage.
Said the former House speaker:
"It is in every family. It is in every community. The momentum is clearly now in the direction in finding some way to ... accommodate and deal with reality. And the reality is going to be that in a number of American states -- and it will be more after 2014 -- gay relationships will be legal, period."
