Truett, it does not matter what you or I equate this too. It does not matter if you or I even like the idea of same sex marriage.
This will be decided by the high courts just like slavery was, women getting the vote, etc., because it deals with equal rights for all U.S. citizens, whether you or I like it or not.
So, in my opinion, all these groups and churches (including my church) are wasting time and money on an issue that they can't keep from eventually happening. Instead, they should just use their money and time in helping the elderly and sick during these hard economic times we are going through. They are just throwing good money after bad.
I agree 100%. They can pass all of the laws and amendments that they want but someday they U.S. Supreme Court will stand up for the U.S. Constitution and do the right thing by declaring them all unconstitutional. Our Declaration of Independence proclaimed :

"We hold these truths to be self evident, that ALL men are created equal!"

Our Constitution also guarantees equal rights to all. That is what freed the slaves, gave women the vote and ended segregation. As I type this, there is an advert on the right side of the page asking me to vote on whether or not Sarah Palin will be the next Vice President. Had she been born a hundred years earlier she would not be able to even vote much less become governor of the largest state in the union or even dream of being a vice presidential candidate. Yet she turns her back on the women and minorities of America. Well, I guess she figures that she got hers so screw everybody else!

To me there was no choice, I've always been naturally attracted to females, as a pre-teen, as an adult and as a dirty old man.

All of the scientific evidence that exists on this subject points to it being determined by genetics and by levels of certain hormones at certain times during fetal development in the womb. So, on what do you base your opinion that it is a choice?
And when did you choose to be straight?
It came naturally.

It's amazing the people throughout history that have been closet-gay and lived famous, high profile lives. In ancient times, being married and taking a homosexual lover was expected. It's odd that in these "modern" times, being gay has been such a sin and aberration. Hopefully, we'll get through this religious hang-up and just be who we are, again. Organized religion really is the root of all evil, as evident with the fundamentalists especially, within ANY religion.
Well said. The good news is that every day we are getting closer to achieving our goals!
