People said America wasn't ready for a Black president. But it *was* ready for a half-Black president. So maybe it's ready for bisexual marriage.

But seriously, I think America's closer to being ready than you might think (and that it ever has been). And the more gay people who come out, the more other people see the love that their friends and family members have for others who happen to be of the same sex, and can relate and accept their love, too. I give it 10 years before same-sex marriages are legal in all but the backwardest states.

I don't believe it. The problem is as much as you and I appreciate gay people for who they are, a very large part of the population has firm core beliefs that homosexuality is a mortal sin, plain and simple. This is a belief dating back THOUSANDS of years and that simply doesn't just go away with wishful thinking

Again, I liken it to polyamory, prostitution, or pornography. Any belief that is against peoples core values, ESPECIALLY when that belief has to do with sex (even tangentially) is just hard to shake. Ten years is way too soon for this debate to be over. 10 years for California, sure. But it'll be a long long time before that equality exists throughout the majority of this country.
