Societal morality has been evolving forever. At one time slavey, eugenics, public executions, segregation, etc were all considered morally acceptable. In my opinion, the withholding of equal rights for homosexuals is just another wrong that society is finally making right. Today's society is more accepting of different races, religions, women, the mentally challenged and countless other historical "others." I think this is necessary progress. I guess what I'm trying to say is Roll Tide.
On your last statement, we can definitely agree.
Pro gay marriage want marriage
Anti gay marriage want to protect sanctity of marriage
Just compromise and call it a civil union (or make up some other term) recognized by state and fed with all of the rights that come with marriage.

This seems relevant. Replace "divorce" with "gay marriage."
"Before leaving the question of divorce, I should like to distinguish two things which are very often confused. The Christian conception of marriage is one: the other is quite the different question—how far Christians, if they are voters or Members of Parliament, ought to try to force their views of marriage on the rest of the community by embodying them in the divorce laws. A great many people seem to think that if you are a Christian yourself you should try to make divorce difficult for every one. I do not think that. At least I know I should be very angry if the Mohammedans tried to prevent the rest of us from drinking wine. My own view is that the Churches should frankly recognize that the majority of the British people are not Christian and, therefore, cannot be expected to live Christian lives. There ought to be two distinct kinds of marriage: one governed by the State with rules enforced on all citizens, the other governed by the church with rules enforced by her on her own members. The distinction ought to be quite sharp, so that a man knows which couples are married in a Christian sense and which are not."
