Agree completely with this. It seems to me that most of my friends support gay marriage, no matter what our political and religious beliefs are, and our children are just baffled as to why there's any opposition. It's just a matter of time. Hopefully sooner, rather than later. We do what we can by supporting candidates with our time and money who agree with this.I support same-sex marriage.
Alternatively, I support a religious organization's right to not perform a same-sex marriage if it goes against the beliefs of that religion.
That said, I do not think the federal, state, or local governments should discriminate against marriages performed by the state (which all are ultimately). Once you take religious belief out of the equation, it is discriminatory not to allow it.
