NC Speaker thinks anti-gay amendment will only last 20 years

Okay, this is odd. This guy got the anti-marriage, anti-civil unions amendment 1 on the ballot in NC, and even HE thinks it won't last.
According to Tillis, researchers have predicted Amendment One will pass with approximately 54 percent, but Tillis, who voted to pass the amendment, believes it won’t remain long. “If it passes, I think it will be repealed within 20 years,” Tillis said.
So people are supposed to vote for a Constitutional amendment the appeal which is only ephermeral? And an amendment SUPPORTER says this?

Moreover, this amendment does more than ban same sex couples from marrying.  It prohibits civil unions, too, and bans any recognition of relationships between unmarried couples whether gay or straight.   Even people who disapprove of marriage for gay people generally support civil unions, so they don't like it either.

Polls are starting to turn in a good direction, but the battle needs to be fully waged to win this one.  More here from Prop8 Trial Tracker.
