Why marriage equality is not a wedge issue
Equal rights under the law are already guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. There are 1,049 rights and benefits which the federal government offers to married people but not to unmarried people. Denying these rights to citizens on the basis of one's religious beliefs constitutes a de facto establishment of religion, and is unconstitutional. To suggest that maintaining the separation of church and state is a "wedge" issue and shouldn't be pursued is nearly an endorsement of theocracy.
Why blaming the GLBT community is homophobic
Uppity blacks who want the right to miscegenate ought to know their place and shut up. Why can't they be happy we're not lynching them anymore like we did these niggers?

Why the GLBT community is not to blame
The GLBT community sought redress and protection through the judicial branch. Taking a cue from Loving vs. Virginia, we used the courts and not the elections to seek equality.
It is obvious that none of the 11 amendments that were on Tuesday's ballots were written by gay people, nor were they supported by gay people. George W. Bush in his last State of the Union address turned marriage equality from a judicial issue into a legislative issue. The evangelical zealots followed suit and publicized this issue in states where it was completely unnecessary to do so, in order to motivate their base and pre-empt the judiciary.
