Gays are created in the image and likeness of God and that they should be treated with respect, dignity and compassion. But Tradition doesn't need to buckle under to progress. That might sound contradictory but its not. The greatness of America is that we can and should co-exist and even rely on each other because this country is the most tolerant in the world for those who are different in our American culture. But tolerance needs to go BOTH WAYS, and demanding those who support keeping what has always been known as marriage to change, isn't tolerant. So call it Civil Union and assure that Gays are afford every other civil liberty. What we need to do is find the BALANCE between Tradition and Progress.
