Whether one sides with the religious conservatives who oppose marriage equality, or the gay activists and their allies who are working for it, all of us can benefit from forgiveness and reconciliation. All of us want to be happy, no one wants to suffer, if you act with that in mind, it will be a good start.
It seems that "culture war" is being waged; "culture peace" is better. It seems a paradox that the right-wing religious elite are promoting this culture war considering that traditional marriage according to the good book includes the ability to marry your slaves, treating your wife as property, and polygamy. The phrase "I support traditional marriage" is just a euphemism for treating gay people as second class citizens.
