As I said, for now, but I'm just not as optimistic as you are. In countries such as Sweden and Canada, the erosion of the free expression of principled disagreement with homosexual practice and same sex marriage began with the advent of so called "human rights" laws that essentially said that anyone expressing seeming disapproval of what is considered "lawful" behavior was considered to be practicing hate speech and subject to prosecution under law. I have even read of places in Canada where the government wanted to prescribe what non-government funded Christian private schools could teach about what they could say about homosexuality. I think you give too much benefit of the doubt to those who claim that all they want is "equality" when in fact what many want is for the free expression of Christian thought and practice to be stigmatized and removed from the marketplace of ideas, if not by outright force, then trough the shaming of anyone expressing such views.
