Almost no elected Republicans support giving gays the right to marry. The party’s influential social-conservative wing sees “traditional marriage” as a defining issue. And while most major Democrats are rushing to embrace same-sex marriage, none of the most prominent potential Republican presidential candidates have taken that step.

But a powerful group of Republican donors, who see the GOP’s staunch opposition to gay rights as a major problem, is trying to push the party toward a more welcoming middle ground — where candidates who oppose marriage rights can do so without seeming hateful.

Quote:
“The state has advanced a number of arguments, but none of them overcome this reality: Same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today,” he wrote. “The harm to them is real, not abstract or speculative.”


And Liberals accuse Right-thinking people of expressing everything in terms of money.

I suppose we have to assume that one's belief in the Almighty deserves no consideration, that some group of professional contrarians have a greater Right to hedonism and perversion than Believers have to following their Faith in the Almighty.
