We may not like what our neighbors say or do, but as long as it's not hurting us, we accept it so we can live together peacefully. Accepting gay marriage is much the same.
Denying a group of people the simple pleasure of marriage, which most people take for granted — and all because their lifestyle is different — is not only homophobic but asinine. Allowing same-sex couples to marry isn't going to threaten or ruin the sanction of heterosexual marriage. All these folks want is equality. What's so wrong with that?
