    ....a lot of people don't like to think of themselves as hateful or bigots. Even if you ask a bunch of gay marriage opponents if they think it's okay to fire someone from their job for being gay, they'd say "no, of course not!" (well, the more casual opponents, not the Dobsonian fanatics). The issue of marriage just makes these more casual opponents think of the Catholic or Protestant church they grew up in being forced to perform same-sex marriages and that just doesn't sit well with them. I think the sooner they know that it's not going to be like that, the sooner they'll realize that same sex marriage is just about equality and freedom and not the downfall of society.
