Gay marriage is not traditional in the major religions. The family is the biological cell of community. The quality of community life depends on the quality of families. We do not know what the total impact on family life gay marriage will represent to society. In a democratic society gays have a right to form legal bonds, but they do not have a right to impose their way of life on society as a whole. Civil marriage, yes, but religions also have a right to pass on what is sacred and what is profane. The big question, it seems to me is providing gay marriage couples with the same legal rights as hetero couples in the secular community.This they should have, but don't interfere with those who have religious convictions which prevent them from blessing this form of introduction to family life. Marriage is an institution, family is a community. Gay couples in toto require third party intervention to have children. This alone tells you that couples who generate gay families are in a fundamental way different from hetero families. But this difference should not be a reason to discriminate in any way against them.
