you tube bigThose of you who have followed the Prop 8 trial or have seen “8 the Play” will remember David Blankenhorn, a witness for Prop 8 who famously flipped and started supporting marriage equality. On Top Magazine reports on Blankenhorn now:

Eight months after announcing his new stance and as the case reaches the Supreme Court, Blankenhorn states in a videotaped interview with Faith in America that he felt ā€œlike a burden had been lifted. I’m not saying this would happen to everybody, but for me when I was able to change on this issue, it felt like a burden had been lifted, you know. It just felt like I’d been carrying around a weight. And it felt like the weight was just not there,ā€ Blankenhorn said.

Have you noticed how rarely people flip from marriage equality support to opposition?
