And the leadership is smart to do so. The days of marriage equality as a wedge issue are past us.
Government recognition of the relationships of tax paying gay citizens is hardly a permissive libertine attitude. I am also a free market guy. I spent 25 years on Wall Street working abroad for a good number of those years. What is doomed to destroy us is religious fanaticism and those who take "the sky is falling approach" to things like marriage equality. Equality has been here for 10 years in parts of the country. The sky is falling, the country is doomed, God will destroy us sort of arguments carry little weight outside the fringe. Life goes on.
Don't you have a church to go to on Sunday morning? I just returned from taking mom to Mass. Today's Mass was quite uplifting.
Well Mr. Brown - there is still hope for you. One day you may be able to overcome your dislike of your gay brothers and sisters in The Lord and accept marriage equality, too. Life is too short to worry about what other people do. Happiness is not a zero sum game whereby a gay couple obtaining happiness somehow increases the likelihood a heterosexual couple will lose happiness. In 5 years time people will be saying what was all that fuss about having the state recognize the relationships of homosexual as well as heterosexual citizens.

Because there is something amoral and socialistic about monitoring what sort of food is served in school cafeterias.
