"That's a settled issue. That said, this too must be said: It's a funny kind of sore winner in the gay rights movement that would say, 'A photographer doesn't want to photograph my wedding -- I've got lots of other photographers I could go to, but I'm going to use the hammer of government to force them to do this.'

"It's not neighborly and it's not nice. The gay rights movement is winning. They should be, as I say, not sore winners."

-- Conservative pundit George Will, responding on Fox News Sunday to a viewer who disagreed with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer's veto of a 'right to discriminate' bill. He noted that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires businesses to serve everyone equally, but apparently doesn't want gays to be all up in everyone's face about it.
