Dear Janimal -
There are tens of thousands of years of history behind the way things have been. Just like the changes with women becoming equal, these sorts of colossal mind shifts take time to ripple through a society.
All the studies I read indicate that older people are most against the idea, and younger people don't see what the big deal is. So my theory is that as the older anti-gay generation passes on, the situation will quickly become one where gay marriage is the norm, and it will be done in a far more rapid time than most other transitions we have seen in history.
I imagine we don't have to wait more than another 10-20 years for the generation situation to have us all have 100% gay marriage states. That's pretty amazing.
I.e. I think with the elder members of our population that it's not going to work to try to change their minds, to undo decades of hard core lessons they have had drilled into them. I think we just have to wait for their generation to fade away.
