As of all you bicker and ridicule, I sit apart from your shenanigans as I watch the beautiful flowering of human rights in our country.
Yes, there were detractors when women wanted the vote (and a higher education).
Yes, there were detractors when african-americans wanted integration and the right to marry persons of the "causacian" race. (an odd term. White people did not evolve in the Caucasus Mountains!)
And, yes, there are detractors to marriage equality. .
You are all small bumps in the road and footnotes to history. Human decency and equal rights will win the day when all is said and done and your lives have ended.
