Your happiness is based on what others believe and you cannot be truly happy as long as I believe that it is wrong to have sexual relations outside of marriage and that marriage is between a man and a woman.
It doesn't matter to you that I, as an individual, don't want to use government to force you to act and believe as I do. It's easier for you to associate me with others who have similar beliefs and have no problem using government in such a fashion.
Ironically, you have more in common with them than you think, as you would just as easily use government to force everyone else to act and believe as you do.
But there are some positive changes happening among the religious in this country.

We are slowly coming to the realization that when you give the government unjust power to dictate what one group of people can or cannot do, they can and will use that power on EVERYONE.
What you refuse to realize, BR, is that I - a Mormon - am really on your side. Maybe you don't want it to be true, but it is. I want government to leave you alone. I want the government to get out of the marriage business and stop categorizing people and treating them differently. Go ahead and enter into a contract with another man and call it marriage or whatever you want.
Just don't infringe upon my right to believe and act as I wish - and don't try to get the government to do it for you - and we can all be happy.
