There are some that think gay marriage is devastated or at least as one family members facebook page- a slippery slope where there will not be any morality now.  This is the same kind of thinking that took place when black people were suddenly allowed the rights given to them by the constitution   it is the same thinking by people against interracial marriage,

In both cases, things only got better and people are still allowed to hold their backwater beliefs.  It did not harm marriage or our society.  Does anyone think religious people have no power today? 

It is true true that homosexuality is more accepted today, but is there anyone that thinks gay people are going away.

America is stronger than ever. It is more moral than ever.  We have a lot of terrible behaviors in our past.  Does anyone think slavery was okay?  Putting Japanese people in prison. Camps.  People were lynched.  Men allowed to beat their wives. Children force to work. We stole land from native Americans and decimated the population.  To be well-rounded I am thinking of more injustice. However, most of it has been done to black people.  Wow!  Forced to have separate schools that were not exqual. Forced to live in fear and not allowed to get education or good jobs or marry a white person.  Of course many gay people have been attacked and killed. Forced to live lies.
