DeMorning Links: A changed tune

Marry away, Hunter now says. (MARVIN JOSEPH/TWP - THE WASHINGTON POST)
When Delano Hunter ran against Harry Thomas Jr. in 2010, he got a lot of grief for opposing the D.C. Council’s vote to legalize gay marriage — and taking money from the National Organization for Marriage to do so. Now, pursuing a run for the Ward 5 seat Thomas vacated, he’s changed his tune, telling the Blade’s Lou Chibbaro Jr. that he’s moved on: “My stance is that I respect the Marriage Equality Act. ... It gives individuals the right to marry whom they chose. But also it gives our religious institutions the right to ordain marriage according to their beliefs. So that is something that I’m in agreement with. It is settled. It is a moot point.”
