    I think that the best argument for religious voters concerned that their churches will be forced to marry gay couples is this: The First Amendment (trashed so often by religious conservatives) prohibits the state from forcing you to perform same-sex marriages.  

    I don't know how moved they would be by this argument.

      When they realize they are forcing other religions to violate their theologies, they can see the injustice.
