I don't think it's fair to demonize and polarize him. It's his public stance, as he is a public persona, but he may be a good person on the inside. And I think it's unfair when people dehumanize public officials because of their "line". If anything he's not even worth caricaturing because he isn't extremist nor has he done anything crazy like Bush.
That being said, yeah, he might not turn out to do anything for same-sex marriage. I do approve him calling for a "church for the poor" though. Even if he can't satisfy everything we'd want to see, I'm willing to take the good with the bad.
