I am not sure that it is even that benign. Judging from the comments of many of the supporters of gay marriage, I suspect that they seek not so much to be affirmed as to bring about the degradation of those who are straight. If they can seduce straights, so much the better and so much greater the fun. If physical seduction is not in the cards, however, they want to force straights, especially Christian straights, to betray their own consciences by actively pretending that gay is good. They enjoy the power game of forcing others to corrupt themselves by submitting.
