I'm a social conservative and a christian. Personally, it really doesn't matter to me what the states define marriage to be. As long as churches are able to dictate their own policies, i could care less. In terms of treatment, I 100% think we should have equality between gay and straight couples. It doesnt make any sense to have preferential treatment of one or the other based on any groups set of values.
Socially, as a christian, i think its extremely unfortunate that the narrative of Christianity has (at least for some people) centered around being discriminatory/hateful towards gays. I think it's so completely opposite of what the message of Jesus is.
