These old school religions that rely on belief systems that date back 1000's of years have their hands tied behind their backs when trying to be relevant in today's society and the "new norm". They want dearly to hold on to their dogmatic faith, but I think deep down they can't reconcile that with their need to connect with today's youth. They are no longer relevant.

Anytime there is exclusion, how can their be talk of unity, not just within their church, but in society as a whole.

Gay marriage has been legal for about .0000000000000000000000000000000001% of human history. Before then, every single human culture -- not just Christian cultures, but every culture on earth -- said marriage was only proper between a man and woman.

But whether between whoever, it doesn't really matter, because we all know that marriage doesn't mean anything anymore anyway. Even the Catholics, who are stricter about marriage than any other sect, freely allow people to "annul" their marriages if they say the right things to church lawyers.
