A few things. First, most of the founders were hebraists, meaning, they were more interested in the political examples found in the hebrew bible
rather then the apolitical new testament. Meaning, undoubtedly, the vast majority of them would have defined marriage as between a man and a woman.
Second, you have to be very ignorant (to put it nicely) to be swept up by the fanfare created by liberals who want to make a nonissue into a watershed
cultural 360. Operation dismantle the judeo-christian foundations of American society is underway, motivated less by the pangs of gays who can't
legally marry than by a desire to shape public opinion. Honestly, it just smacks of politicization, sanctimony and overall a waste of neurons.
Personally, I think everyone deserves the right to marry, gay or non-gay. A liberal society requires it, whether you agree or disagree. My compunction
is with the media's moralization and partiality in its coverage of it. This, instead of stressing the civic need to grant liberty to all, regardless
of your opinions, focuses in on the "superior" moral of being blind to sexuality and marriage.
This is more a utilitarian than a moral issue. Morally, I completely disapprove of same sex relationships (although my cousin Is gay, and we're good
friends, i overlook my issue with his relationship in order to maintain our relationship); but politically, I see the importance of creating an
environment where no one view predominates.
